07 Jul 2015 Red letter day in Brighton Pavilion Gardens

Brighton Pavilion Gardens had a storming day! First I discovered the Monarch, and then from my office saw a house sparrow on the Dome adjacent to the Gardens. A site rarity! Only my second record.....which is only one more record than Monarch!

06 Jul 2015 Brighton Swifts   more...

Numbers of Swifts over my road (the Coombe Road/Bear Road/Lewes Road area of Brighton) have swelled a bit over the last week or so. Originally I was only seeing three or four Swifts, but today there were approaching 20, which was good to see (and  especially hear!). I'm hoping numbers will increase further still!

06 Jul 2015 Weir Wood Reservoir   more...

Spent an hour around the hide car park mid afternoon. Counted 104 Great Crested Grebes, 1 Little Egret, 3 Common Terns, 4 Lapwing and at least 1 Reed Warbler. Several Black-headed Gulls are back long with at least 7 Herons and 6 Cormorants. Didn't see the Green Sandpipers, I guess these must have been on part of the reservoir not visible from here.

06 Jul 2015 Monarch butterfly!   more...

Superb Monarch butterfly flew SE over Brighton Pier at 12.15 on a brisk southwest breeze. Unmistakable and wondering if likely migrant from Spain (now breeding) or an escape? Thoughts welcomed!

05 Jul 2015 Teenage children come good!

My two bird watching hating children discovered a pair of little owls yesterday at North Stoke! Went this evening and sure enough there they were (in the pony paddocks on the telegraph poles). Bizarrely there was also a male Redstart calling loudly and perched on a fence post at the edge of the paddock dropping onto the ground for food. No sign of any other birds so was it an early migrant? Or just maybe there is a pair? Keep your eyes peeled if you are passing the church at North Stoke. Look in the pony padlock opposite. Not a place if you don't like rats. There were loads!

Great Crested Grebes still increasing up to 103 this morning at the west end, 5 Common Terns busy chasing each other, and 3 Green Sandpipers, 3 Teal, 7 Lapwings and 21 Mandarin  feeding on the mud. Opposite the hide 2 Kingfishers were fishing. A single Sand Martin hawking low over the water, a Grey Wagtail that landed briefly on a tern raft and plenty of Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs calling round the car park.

04 Jul 2015 Hedgecourt Lake   more...

Don't want to seem picky here, but Hedgecourt Lake is actually in Surrey and is a Surrey Wildlife Trust reserve. Still a Little Tern is a good bird to see there and it is nice to see the sightings posted though as I used to live close by and saw my first ever Bittern there.

04 Jul 2015 First Swift Tower in Sussex   more...

By kind invitation I attended the Susenco Solar Farm this morning just north of Berwick and Arlington Reservoir to watch the first Swift Tower to be erected in Sussex. A bespoke box containing 11 chambers was put up by volunteers and a 'cherry picker' with a calling system set to attract breeding birds in future years. Well done to all those involved, and let's keep our fingers crossed we don't have to wait too many seasons.
