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.
Arriving at Hove the heavens opened as I got out the car but managed a few shots of the Grey Phalarope which stayed for just over a week on the kiddies paddling pool
After this I picked up Paul and went to Arundel. A walk around Swanbourne Lake was birdless, up at the Burgh likewise other than a couple of Red Kites and Wood Pigeons. Arriving back at Widewater to see 6 Red-breasted Mergansers, we met Ian and Brenda who told us of the Glaucous Gull .that had just flown off. A search of both sides of the harbour drew a blank

In Shoreham Harbour one of two Purple Sandpipers were on the inner beach
