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.

White-winged Black Tern another lifer! Sat 18th October

Despite a look at Castle Water Hide at first light on Saturday I couldn't find the Tern, but after hearing it was still around at lunchtime I took another look in the afternoon, although not close was quite impressive - an adult moulting.

 On the Sunday we went to Dunge and I finally managed to get a Ring ouzel on my year list in fact there were nine.

Ring Ouzel -female I guess
Another visit to Caste Water in the afternoon where the Tern performed well in front of the hide but no better pics.
