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.
Several afternoon dog walks this week were from Winchelsea Beach around parts of Rye Harbour reserve, highlights were on Wednesday 5 Bar-tailed Godwit, and 30 Ringed Plover on the sand, plus the usual waders. 2 Grey Partridge close to Ternery Pool, and a duck in the distance on the pools at the barns that looked like a female Scaup, by now there was poor light and I hadn't the scope.
One of many Dunlin
Friday a tight flock of waders on the shingle waiting for the tide to ebb included 41 Dunlin, 34 Grey Plover and 18 Sanderling.
