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.

Monday 14th May Walks with Warblers

Over the last week or so due to the heavy rain dog walks have been confined to the least muddiest areas, so the beach has been popular also Rye Hbr. After the excitement of the Kentish Plover on Bank Holiday monday alot of disappointed birders including me as the rarer waders had gone. Consolation was this male Wheatear along the track by the visitor centre
Northern Wheatear
 Also a Lapwing reasonably close by.

Along the canal the warblers are setting up their teritories, Common Whitethroats,

And several Cettis Warblers but very hard to see as usual, like the occasional Lesser Whitethroat heard but not seen.
