About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Sunday 29th Jan. SWW Pulborough and the Burgh

Starting at Pulborough, walked down to Jupp's view, usual ducks and geese, Goldcrests and a Firecrest in bramble near the conifers.
Walk around Wiggonholt Common 20-30 Crossbills by the dump

Back at the visitors centre the Water Rail eventually showed  

Next a walk around Rackham woods, Marsh, Coal, Longtailed Tits, Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Greater Spotted Woodpecker and sounds of others. Then onto the Burgh in a dull and windless afternoon, 12 plus Yellow Hammers, Grey Partridge, single Red Kite several common Buzzards, prolonged views of 1 may be 2 Short-eared Owls but no sign of the Rough-legged Buzzard.
