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 3rd February Distant Geese

Hearing reports over the last week of 2 Pink-footed geese are on Pett Level today I stopped at the sea wall looking over the pools towards the canal was the flock of Canadas and Greylags just on the edge of the flock 2 slightly smaller and darker headed grey geese. To get a better view a walk along the very muddy canal bank hoping to get nearer. Almost at Pannel Valley they were still distant but sure these are the Pink-foots.

 Within a couple of minutes they disappeared over the grass bank.  8 Whitefronts were also present.
 At Carters a few Teal and Shelduck, A hunting Barn Owl was robbed by a Kestrel.
Its been a good year aso far for seeing Barn Owls.
