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.
With such lovely weather I felt like another short walk, so we parked at Pannel Lane and walked up to Icklesham through the woods, not much around except for corvidsWood Pigeons and a few Stock Doves.
Nearbye Paul McCartney's Mill, a flock of Chaffinches but no Bramblings. Walking down to Pannel valley Great Spotted Woodpecker flew over. In the fields Common, Black Headed and Med Gulls were calling.
The scrape surprisingly empty, apart from a few Lapwing and the usual Ducks. Male and Female Marsh Harrier hunting over the reeds and the Barn Owl put in an appearance.
