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 11th March. SWW Coates Common and Burton Mill Pond


Coates Common

A walk starting off from Coates Common, found Woodlark, and drumming GS Woodpeckers.


a distant Great Spotted Woodpecker


Further on a couple of Little Owls were spotted in the distance by one of the group.


2 well camouflaged Little Owls


Back at Burton Mill 2 Grey Wagtails were on the mill race.

 Around the back of the mill Pond the usual woodland birds, with plenty of crests calling, a Buzzards nest was noticed and this one was close by.


Common Buzzard
 Later on at Petworth park we went looking for Brambling but no luck, seems they have eluded me this winter, but the Egyption Goose were close at hand.
