23 Jan 2017 Old Lodge   more...

I made a mid-morning visit to the Old Lodge with a journey through the fog, to be welcomed by blue sky and sunshine! Bird wise I saw 4 Goldcrests, 3 Siskins, plenty of Redwings and a female crossbill (picture attached).

23 Jan 2017 Garden Snipe   more...

I get quite a few birds popping into my garden but was surprised to see a Snipe drop by (just for a few seconds). My garden is very small and this handsome bird looked out of place on my little area of lawn. Sadly I wasn't quick enough to get a photo.

23 Jan 2017 Crawley Waxwings Revisited   more...

Saw the 2 Waxwings again in a garden apple tree along Curteys Walk this afternoon. The unringed individual appears to be an adult male and the ringed bird could be a 1st winter female. The ring combination is actually left: yellow over 2 blues and right: metal (not black) over white.

22 Jan 2017 The Arun Triangle   more...

We started at Coldwaltham sewage works where we saw ca.30 Chiffchaffs and 1 Siberian Chiffchaff, nearby at Waltham Brooks the Great Grey Shrike showed well. We then went to Burpham viewpoint and counted 22 Bewick's Swans including 3 juveniles. The Burgh area produced a ringtail Hen Harrier, 8 Red Kites, 2 Ravens and 30 Grey Partridge. Rather than drive home with the sun in our eyes we decided to park at the Black Rabbit pub till dusk where we recorded the following species: 29 Cormorants flying N, Great White Egret, Marsh Harriers and finally a Barn Owl foraging along the River Arun. A very successful and enjoyable day. (Barry & Margaret Collins).

23 Jan 2017 Dead birds of prey

With regard to the dead Buzzard reported by Richard de Souza, but equally for anyone else who finds a dead bird of prey, I would encourage them to get in contact with the Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme. They analyse the bodies for research purposes, with the intent of monitoring chemical distribution in the environment.

22 Jan 2017 Newhaven to Seaford and Cuckmere Haven   more...

Starting from Newhaven Harbour station a walk up Mill Creek produced a Kingfisher, approx 90 Teal, 6 Redshank, and 10 Dunlin. The Serin was showing well at Tide Mills. Along the coast to Seaford a female Stonechat, a Great Crested Grebe on the sea and further out 3 Razorbills could be seen on the water. At Splash Point a Rock Pipit, single Oystercatcher, and 3 Fulmars overhead. Near the Coastguard cottages 7 Fulmars were on the cliffs. Approx 200 Wigeon flew South straight out to sea at Cuckmere, where I managed to pick out 7 Barnacle Geese amongst the Canada Geese, 9 Common Gulls, 2 Lesser Black Backed Gulls, 3 Ringed Plover, 5 Lapwings, 12 Little Grebes, 5 Curlew and around 200 Wigeon on the meanders. Back at Splash Point a Green Sandpiper was at the end of the jetty feeding on molluscs.

21 Jan 2017 Possible Barn Owl road casualty   more...

This posting is not unlike that of Richard de Souza's relating to the Buzzard. While driving south down the M23/A23 yesterday evening, just before where the traffic joins from the Pease Pottage junction, there was a white shape beside the road. Judging by the rounded wing, it looked to me as if it might be a Barn Owl. My immediate thought was that it had been forced by the prolonged cold weather to hunt the roadside verges which might have been slightly more sheltered than the open countryside.

22 Jan 2017 Tide Mills & Ouse Estuary Project

After having good views of the Serin we walked out onto the pier where, despite no Purple Sandpipers, there were confiding Turnstones and a Guillemot in the harbour. In the mill creek there were 40 Dunlin along with Redshank and Teal, also 12 Greenfinches, a Reed Bunting and Snipe in the general area. Just up the road in the Ouse Estuary Project we saw 17 Red-legged Partridge in a field, also a Green Woodpecker briefly then Lapwing and 4 Curlew overhead.

22 Jan 2017 Rodmell and Southease Walk   more...

A gentle but very enjoyable birding walk was undertaken today with a group of 26! Our site recce on Saturday revealed very few birds and no owl activity, so it was a great relief to be able to report that we did at least have a few highlights in perfect conditions on this beautiful Sunday. The highlights included great views of Kingfisher, Snipe (for part of the group at least), Peregrine, and close detail views of Redwing and Song Thrush. A quick tally gave a total number of bird species seen as 31, so it was definitely quality not quantity, and we are grateful for some great spotting going on by individuals in the group, or it could have been even less. A few members of the group joined us afterwards for a trip to Lewes to look for Waxwings and Goosander but without any success.

22 Jan 2017 Shoreham & DOS Outing   more...

12 SDOS members gathered at the RSPB Information Centre, Sidlesham, on a frosty morning with clear blue skies, plenty of sunshine and little wind. We explored around the Tramway and the Long Pool first thing. Poor hazy morning light proved problematic in identifying many of the waders out in the harbour although the usual suspects were lurking around. A Spotted Redshank in the creek at the end of the Long Pool was our best find. A hungry Reed Bunting was feeding on unfrozen reed seeds at the top of the stem just like a Bearded Tit and a skulking Water Rail flew over the pool diving into thick cover. A dashing Kingfisher zoomed by, only the alert managed to glimpse it! At Church Norton there were a few Knot and Black-tailed Godwits feeding out in the harbour as well as a pair of Peregrines lounging around! A walk out onto Church Norton spit to the harbour mouth in the afternoon proved rather birdless. Offshore we found hardly anything, a real disappointment after recent weeks of the sea being very productive. In the main channel 2 Goldeneye were feeding with other ducks albeit they were along way off! Back at the inner beach the wintering Whimbrel was very confiding , ending our day nicely.Thanks to you for helping to find the birds on a delightful wintry day. Bernie
