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.

Saturday 30th November Rye Harbour

Highlights from today's trip were seeing a Spotted Redshank alongside a Common Redshank on the quarry, with a Little Egret close by.

On the Ternery Pool the long staying Long-tailed Duck was distant. But with Hempstead Forest only an hour away decision was made to head there for the reported Parrot and Two-barred Crossbills. Despite spending a couple of hours waiting / looking we only managed a flock of 9 Common Crossbills. Sitting in a tree some distance away was this bird of prey - possible juvenile Peregrin or cross.

Juvenile or cross Peregrin
