From here we headed to Westdean Woods where I managed to spot a Bullfinch fly in front of the car. At the usual tree by Staple Ash farm the Little Owl was showing well.
A walk up to Monkton farm found several flocks of Bramblings,
Plus Red Kites and a Marsh Tit both new for the year.
A scan around at Monkton failed to find any Hawfinches but on the way back Bridget spotted one and then the same or another was seen.
Stopping off at Chalk Springs in Arundel 18 Mandarin ducks were roosting on the bank of one of the fishing pools. A great day adding 8 species to my year list.
