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.
After a misty start to the morning, a few breaks in the cloud appeared but not enough for good photos, however the birds put on a good show although distant with all expected seen.
First up was a Willow Warbler in the car park
Next a Woodlark
Then a couple of Male Common Redstarts
Followed by a singing and displaying Tree Pipit
Also seen a calling Cuckoo, and 4 fly by Crossbills.
Later at Weirwood Reservoir a Little Ringed Plover and Black Cap
