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.

Highlights of the festive season

The long stayers of the Glossy Ibis and the Long-eared Owl have continued to provide interest over Christmas, however both have not been guaranteed. After missing out on both on Monday morning the Ibis obliged in the afternoon and on Tuesday the LE Owl was showing well.
Several Great White Egrets around.

One of two Barn Owls showed very well mid afternoon at Castle Water

On Dungeness Beach the 1st winter Caspian Gull has become a favourite with many birders. Here's hoping they stay into the new year to give a good start to our 2016 lists.
