22 May 2017 Beachy Head and Crowlink   more...

Wandered around Whitbread Hollow, Beachy Head. Lots of Whitethroats singing away and occasional Stonechat sighting. Two massive Red Kites drifted from the north and headed west before returning to circle the hollow and glide away towards Eastbourne. Stopped at Crowlink and walked to the cliffs. Three Ravens towards the cliff along with a dozen Oystercatchers on the rocks below. On walk back to car park at Friston Pond a Hobby darted low across the ground from west to east and disappeared toward East Dean.

22 May 2017 Rye Harbour Nature Reserve

A Spoonbill has been around for a few days, but is elusive - seen last evening in pool north of Ternery Pool. But even if you miss that there's so much to see at the moment and the terns are at last catching lots of Sandeels. BUT no Yellow Wagtail or Turtle Dove and the Lapwing have been struggling with the very dry ground (= no worms), but it may have rained enough just in time for a late nesting flurry with lots of tumbling, peewitting display yesterday...

22 May 2017 Leucistic Starling

Among the hordes of Starlings coming to food in our Bishopstone garden is one juvenile bird that at first looked all white. When seen well it is actually very pale cream with a dark eye. Although a juvenile(still being fed by a normal coloured adult along with two normal coloured siblings). it has an a bright all yellow bill and pink legs!

22 May 2017 Turtle dove at Compton   more...

Not sure whether this qualifies for Sussex it may be just in Hampshire. A Turtle dove was perched on an electricity pole in the fields between Compton village and Uppark house calling clearly. A most welcome sound I'd almost forgotten.

22 May 2017 Arlington Reservoir

11.00 to 14.00 Raptors were some eight buzzards, two or three red kites (two drifted SE early on and one over the water later), single kestrel, peregrine and hobby (latter was airborne for quite a while evidently catching inverts). I looked and listened for turtle dove, garden warbler and grey wagtail but found none. A willow warbler was singing still in NW corner.

22 May 2017 Red-legged Partridges

Over the last two years we have had periodic bursts of Red-legged Partridge activity in Fairways Road (South-east, residential Seaford) - up to five birds at a time running up and down the road and in the front gardens of the houses/bungalows. This morning one was sitting on roof-ridge of the house opposite us, once or twice in the past I have seen them do this early morning calling loudly. We are only a very few minutes walk from the edge of acres of farmland (there is no game shooting on the land), and it does seem somewhat strange that they chose to hang-out in bungalow-ville rather than the National Park.

21 May 2017 Around Arundel

A visit to the Wetland Centre proved productive when a female Honey Buzzard appeared just after 3pm and was mobbed by two of the local Buzzards, finally heading north after about 10 minutes. An evening walk to Rewell Wood yielded at least 2 Nightjars (active from 9.10pm), a roding Woodcock at 9.20pm, 2 Nightingales and Tawny Owl.
