How far full did you fill the rad? Above the fins or to the top of the tank? If its overfilled, expansion when parked after a run will push the excess out of the overflow, happend to me a few weeks ago after a hard drive.

fill rad about 1/2" below the ring where the cap seals
as i dont have any expansion tank .

Check the level again and it should be probably 1/2 an inch over the top of the gills as a minimum
if its less than that you may have a problem.
but It could just be purging air out of the system as it all settles down
top it up again (maybe a little less than before) and keep an eye on the engine temp and coolant level.
It may also be a rad cap issue...too short or weak

Happened to me yesterday.
Always carry water to top up, just in case.

I found out my problem was a split in the bypass hose. This is rather annoying as it was a Minispares black Kevlar one that was only 3 years and 4000 miles old.
