Sunday 22nd SWW Thorney Island

An early start dissapointment as the footpath was closed from the security gate.
but.
Marsh Harrier, Brents, Pintail, Red-breasted Mergansers, and a Kingfisher on the wire by the Great Deeps


Moving on to Hayling Island for another look at the SHORE LARK in very windy conditions at hightide it was sharing the spit with hundreds of Dunlin and Ringed Plover.



On next to Warblington find the CATTLE EGRET we couldn't find last Thursday.

Then onto West Dean Woods

Red Kite on the way, Fieldfares,Nuthatch, Linnets, Buzzards, Sparrowhawk, Gold Crest,
HAWFINCHES, and a large flock of Chaffinches and a possible Brambling amoungst them.
