30 Jan 2015 Kumlien's Gull   more...

I was interested in the suggestion that the Kumlien's Gull at Littlehampton is last year's returning bird but therein lies a problem. As far as the SOS records database is concerned there was no Kumlien's Gull at Littlehampton last year for the simple reason that nobody has sent in a record for it. Unless somebody does, the record will not appear in the Annual Bird Report. So don't leave it to somebody else - if you have a description or photos (preferably compressed) please complete a Scarce Records Form and send it to me. I would much rather have lots of submissions than none at all. The same applies to the long-staying Pevensey Levels Richard's Pipit for which there have been no 2014 record submissions. Once again, send in your descriptions and photos otherwise the record will simply disappear.

30 Jan 2015 Ouse Estuary Project   more...

A decent covering of water has now created a good habitat. Two Water Rails showing well occasionally and simultaneously from the screen. Also two Snipe and a Little Egret. Presence of a sleepy fox at the water's edge probably deterred more snipe. Elsewhere one more Snipe but only 25 Teal.

Peter Martin might want to check to see that the likely identity of the Cackling Goose currently in the Cuckmere Valley is ssp. minima not hutchinsii.

29 Jan 2015 Ten Teal...yes indeed!

This is not intended to re-report the sighting of the Teal at Widewater this morning. I just wanted to thank Mr. Kitson for his post, which served as a reminder of the birds being there. I had completely forgotten about them when I posted earlier! I spotted 8 at the time, but the 2 extra birds must have appeared later on.

Whilst out around Ashington today, at Broadbridge Farm observed a red kite feeding on something in the grass, two buzzards over America Wood, and down by the church a female red-tailed hawk flying with another buzzard. To finish off a kestrel at Upper Chancton Farm followed by a brief glimpse of a female sparrowhawk.

Bewick's Swans still there near Burpham in same location as before but I only counted 20. Kingfisher in one of the streams and one Buzzard. Checked out The Burgh for first time. Had great expectations. After two hours of searching and getting cold I gave up having seen nothing of note. Red Kite and Kestrel seen after Canada Barn on the way to Amberley.

29 Jan 2015 Here comes summer!   more...

Down at the Widewater Lagoon this afternoon it definitely didn't feel like, nor look like summer, but one black-headed gull evidently thought otherwise (see attached pic). Otherwise, in addition to David Holdstock's sightings below there were ten teal up-ending as one.

27 Jan 2015 Gallivanting around West Sussex

West Dean, Staple Ash Farm: the very obliging little owl. West Dean, Yew Tree Farm: small flock (12ish) redpolls. West Dean, The avenue of beech trees: feeding in the puddles with a small flock of chaffinches by the road half way along the avenue 4 bramblings (inc one superb male) plus a yellowhammer; plus two red kites overhead. Selsey Bill: 4 great northern divers close inshore. Alas we dipped out on the Iceland gull (a rose by any other name!) at Littlehampton. Happy birding, David (Quizmaster) Potter and Nigel Barnes.

Eleven Chiffchaffs at Coldwaltham sewage works this morning, feeding actively in the trees and brambles outside the perimeter fence. One of the birds, was a tristis-type and easily distinguishable from the others. Several Long-tailed Tits and a Goldcrest also busy in the trees.

27 Jan 2015 Littlehampton revisited   more...

This morning I went down to Littlehampton West Beach for the Kumlien's gull and there it was on the east harbour wall just as it had been almost a year ago (8th Feb 2014), then a first-winter, now a second-winter with some grey on the mantle and a paler based bill (pic attached).
