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.

Tuesday 14th Feb. Valentines Day

I don't do that, but walked the dog from Winchelsea Beach around Rye Hbr reserve. The main target was for the Smew reported the day before, meeting up with a couple of birders who had been around the Ternery Pool hadn't seen them, so things didn't look to promising. In the hide at the Quarry end of the Ternery Pool in the distance just below the the Old Lifeboat house there was a white blob on the pool.
Probably a gull I thought, but went round to the seaward hide and saw 2 Drake and 3 Redhead Smew

.Mission accomplished.
