22 May 2015 Cuckmere Spoonbill

Imm. Spoonbill on scrape, lower Cuckmere, late morning, eventually flying off N. Presumably the bird seen here earlier this month. Incidentally, has anyone ever heard a Spoonbill?

After a rather disappointing walk at Seaford Head I went onto Arlington where at least I saw a Peregrine (albeit distant - hence the picture).

21 May 2015 Rewell Wood, Arundel

A brief visit this evening yielded three Nightjars chasing each other at 21.19 after a brief spell of churring. Another, or one of the three, seen further along the footpath but no more churring by 21.40. Also two Tawny Owls calling. Earlier in the evening, a pair of Mandarin and three chicks in Waterwoods.

21 May 2015 Adur Valley warblers

I took the dog for a walk from Cuckoo Corner to Botolphs today and I saw and heard 6 sedge warblers, 1 reed warbler and a pair of reed buntings, they were located close to the car park and the creek. The EA has cut all the reeds back over the winter, which has probably reduced their nesting sites. I also saw 4 little egrets, one of which flew into the trees near the rookery along the Coombes road.

21 May 2015 West Sussex commons   more...

Day spent birding a couple of the commons; plenty of sunshine although the north westerly wind still holds a cold bite. The first common proved more successful than the second with at least 6 singing male Common Redstarts holding territory. Actually seeing them proved to be very challenging with most of them singing from the tops of very high conifer trees. Three Cuckoos calling, 2 Garden Warblers singing and 2 pairs of Bullfinches. A few Siskins heard with a single juvenile seen; at 3 separate locations we found Spotted Flycatchers possibly holding territory. Pair of Marsh Tits. At the second common: 2 pair of Stonechats holding territory, singing Woodlark and 2 singing Tree Pipits. Calling Siskin, fly over Red Kite and singing Firecrest.

21 May 2015 Pagham Harbour (east)   more...

Down the east side at low tide just single whimbrel and curlew and at the end of Pagham Spit two each of little, common and Sandwich tern. On the Breach Pool at 10.30 just four pairs of tufted duck biding their time (they nest late) and at 2pm a male teal feeding energetically may, I suspect, be a local breeder (pic attached).

21 May 2015 Hobbies   more...

At 3pm yesterday and today had up to six hobbies catching insects at Pulborough Brooks RSPB, along the river and among the cows as seen from Winpenny and West Mead hides, never close but thrilling nonetheless (atmospheric picture of one such attached).

20 May 2015 Selsey to Pagham   more...

A walk round the harbour from Selsey to Pagham village produced a total of 74 species. Sandwich Terns gave good views at Selsey Beach (see photo), and two Buzzards passed high over going north, possibly Honey but I couldn't be sure. On the wader front, Ringed and Grey Plovers, Redshank, Curlew and Dunlin were in the harbour, and all the common warblers were singing away, including a few Lesser Whitethroats and at least 6 Cetti's. Eight Avocets and 150 Black-tailed Godwits were on the Ferry Pool, and a Spoonbill asleep on an island in the harbour. Thanks to the two birders who pointed this out, I had passed it over as just another Little Egret!

20 May 2015 Turtle Dove in Rye   more...

A Turtle Dove was purring in bushes by the railway at Gibbet Marsh this morning and a Lesser Whitethroat rattling nearby. In the past, the strip of woodland alongside the railway has been occupied by TDs further west at Winchelsea Stn and Doleham. On nearby Cadborough Cliff, a dense population of songbirds including Yellowhammers and Nightingale plus Cuckoos and Hobby. Across Rye Marsh, many Skylarks and a dozen Yellow Wagtails.

20 May 2015 West Rise Marsh & Shinewater

West Rise Marsh: Plenty of Reed Warblers and Reed Buntings plus Swifts. Shinewater: Whitethroats, Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and 3 or 4 Cetti's Warblers - all skulking in the bushes.

20 May 2015 SOS walk at Burton Mill Pond   more...

Seventeen members turned out for this walk in a rich variety of habitats, in generally fine weather but with occasional short showers. A total of 42 species was seen or heard by most of the group, with another handful recorded individually, and there was plenty of interest also for the botanists among us. Highlights: A family of Great Crested Grebes was on the water, with a fish provided for one of the young by its father, and consumed with difficulty. A family of Coots was also present and a pair of Reed Warblers was seen flitting about near the road, while more were heard further away. A Buzzard was overhead and a Firecrest seen as we headed into the woods, where a Mistle Thrush was singing loudly, as were resident Robins, Blackbirds and Wrens, along with Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs. A male Bullfinch was spotted by some members of the group, before a diversion to the Black Pond revealed Stock Dove and Kestrel across the fields, and a Little Grebe on (mainly under!) the water.

At Chingford Pond, we had delightful views of a pair of Grey Wagtails, one carrying nesting material, possibly wool plucked from a nearby alpaca! Sand Martins were flitting over the water, a Red Kite was high above us while several Tufted Duck, single Gadwall and Shelduck were on the water, and Great Crested Grebe, Mute Swan and Coot were on nests. Several Goldcrests were heard high up in the conifers further on, and a rather tatty Marsh Tit seen at the Black Hole.

After lunch in the car park, we heard Whitethroat and Willow Warbler as we started our stroll around Lords Piece. As a finale we had cracking views of extremely obliging Tree Pipit and Yellowhammer, and enjoyed the sound of Field Crickets everywhere. It's a beautiful piece of heathland, and clearly very popular with free-running dogs and their owners, not good news for 'target' ground-nesting birds here. Many thanks to all for good company and fine spotting!
