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.
A couple of hours on the sea wall on a sunny but cold morning. Canada Geese numbers are starting to increase and it was nice to see the Farmyard Goose and the Bar Headed was back on the level after possibly spending the summer at Scotney. Greylags however are few and far between although several are at Rye. Juvenile Marsh Harrier on a tree by the pools. On the beach 3-4 Wheatears (yesterday 20+) several Yellow Wags with the Pied, Meadow Pipits, flocks of Goldfinches over. On the sea 3 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Common Scoter, 1 poss Red Throated Diver very distant, 1 deffinate Black Necked Grebe in close (confirmed by Pete Rouse) and 1 Common Seal.
