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.

Greater Yellow-legs 18th July

With all current home projects up to date, weather and tides looking favourable I  set off to Titchfield Haven to see the Yellow Legs, sadly it wasn't on the river viewable from the road so paid the £4 to go onto the reserve where it was showing well although distant from Suffrern Hide. Despite it being present for several months now I was surprised to see several birders like me that hadn't seen it before.

On the way home I stopped off at Wilmington to look for butterflies but on the top of the downs it was too windy, however in the sheltered track leading to the Long Man there were lots of Small Skippers and Marbled Whites and one Silver Washed Fritillery
