30 Oct 2014 Overland Brents   more...

Alastair Gray's Brents over Ashdown were not the only ones taking a short-cut across the county yesterday, for a flock of 160 flew S over Powdermill Reservoir at about 10am. A single Hawfinch was near Sedlescombe. In the afternoon, a short walk in the Brede Valley produced Marsh Harrier, Peregrine, Buzzard, Kingfisher and two Green Sandpipers as well as small numbers of Mallard, Teal and Wigeon.

30 Oct 2014 Pagham snow bunting

I do believe the snow bunting on Pagham Spit has been there a couple of days or more having been found by David Illman and told to me yesterday but in the pouring rain and gloom I failed to connect with it.

30 Oct 2014 Birding on the peninsula   more...

What a lovely day with temps around 18C on the coast, delightful. Pagham Lagoon, the beach and the east side of the harbour was our first birding stop. Plenty of Linnets (ca.100) and Greenfinches (ca.40) feeding along the beaches, out in the harbour numbers of Brent Geese, Wigeon and Teal are increasing as winter approaches with a single Greenshank lingering. On the walk back from the derelict hide on Pagham Beach a Snow Bunting flew W over our heads calling. It appeared to drop on to the shingle near the small lagoon but despite a thorough search we were unable to relocate it. Checked out the Oak Copse by the beach near the second Severals but no sign of the Pallas's Warbler, just a few Goldcrest and tits! At Medmerry from the caravan viewpoint just a single Wheatear and two Knot plus two clouded yellows. At Church Norton two juvenile Peregrines. (Bernie Forbes & Dorian Mason).

30 Oct 2014 A few Stonechats   more...

In the scrub/gorse clumps near the cliffs between Crowlink and Cuckmere Haven five pairs of Stonechats were feeding and flying between the bushes. Hardly any wind and bright sun this morning which made for a pleasant walk.

30 Oct 2014 South Downs stroll above Storrington   more...

A walk from Chantry to Kithurst on a remarkably warm October day found a Kestrel floating along with accompanying flock of Skylarks, a Red Kite, two Yellowhammers, Goldfinches, a "cronking" Raven (four more enjoying the gusting wind), two Stonechats, 100s of Common gulls and "jangling" Corn Buntings along the field edges.

29 Oct 2014 Spoonbill revisited   more...

In Pagham Harbour as seen from Pagham Spit the juv spoonbill, at first glued to its spot at Tern Island, moved to roost at New Island where, although not visible to me in the field the left tibia colour rings are seen as red over blue (pic attached). The artefact on the right tibia is blue and damaged and appears to cause the bird to limp.

29 Oct 2014 Productive brent geese   more...

In Pagham Harbour as seen from Pagham Spit on the rising tide say 1000 brent geese, notable not only for their crooning calls but for the lots of juveniles, family parties of seven (two parents and five juvs) being common (pic attached of one such, one adult in middle, other out of shot, the other five their juvs).

29 Oct 2014 Black Redstarts   more...

A bit of a dreary day was brightened when, looking out of my living room window in Saltdean I saw two Black Redstarts on a roof opposite. Both were flying up to take insects then returning to the roof.

29 Oct 2014 Grey Wagtail   more...

Interesting that I am not the only one to see a Grey Wagtail in the garden, for the last couple of weeks a female has been seen on a daily basis (maybe because I have been placing mealworms around the pond). This is only the 4th record for the garden list in 30 years. Hope she stays for a while.

29 Oct 2014 Meadow Pipits at Salehurst   more...

A flock of 20-30 Meadow Pipits, which I normally see here in autumn, in a meadow (!) near Silverhill Wood. Also plenty of finches including good numbers of Greenfinches, Chaffinches and very large numbers of Goldfinches feeding on the Nijer seeds. The latter species must be close to historically high numbers here. Yellowhammer calling in the hedgerows. Corvids and Woodpigeons very active too with good numbers of Jays and Magpies.
