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 17th February On a Twitch

A twitch to the border of Wilts and Gloucester on Monday gave another year tick of
 Ring - necked Parakeet flying over the M25 in Surrey
 
Along the M4 at least 7 Red Kites plus a couple more at Marshfield our destination

A short look around and Bob found the Red-tailed Blueflank


A stunning bird also seen Raven and Grey Wagtail
Raven
From here we went to the Cotswolds Water Park to see the breeding colony of
 Red-crested Pochard 17 were counted
 
Our final stop was Netherton Bottom near Andover a quiet corner of Hampshire where all the usual woodland birds were seen plus Red-legged Partridge but best of all a calling then singing Willow Tit
Netherton Bottom

Thanks Paul for the guiding, and Bob for the company.
