I walked East on the exposed sand between the chalk boulders. At some point I was startled by some harsh calls from the cliffs. It was a pair of Fulmars sitting on a ledge of the cliff, chattering to each other, and watching intently every time another individual passed overhead in that merry-go-round game that Fulmars do.
After lunch I walked on the paths on the top of the reserve, by the woodland and then the cliff tops, where the kestrel was still hovering.

It took a while, but I managed a focused shot of this Rock Pipit on the kelp.
A small Linnet flock settled on the side of the cliff to feed.
The silouette of the Kestrel hovering over the cliffs followed me in my walk. At some point the kestrel stooped down and got something small, but I couldn't make out what it was.
