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.

Thursday 9th Feb. Afternoons Dog Walk to Castle Water.

Starting from the viewpoint hoping to show Paula the Barn Owl and a Bittern I immediately had a distant glimpse of a Bittern in flight. Heading off towards the hide Paula pointed out the Barn Owl hunting in the field at the back of the warehouses.

At the hide it wasn't long before we found a Bittern reluctant to come out into the open

While watching this one another took off flying towards the Cormorant roost. Walking back accross the fields the geese were quite distant possibly the Pink-footed were there but as the light was fading I really needed the scope.
