At Pulborough Brooks (South) RSPB this morning one adult great black-backed gull (pic attached). I did not connect with the brood of mandarin ducks but heard that they had been seen, nor did I see the two ringed plovers that had been here yesterday morning.

26 May 2016 Nightjar at Woodingdean   more...

Last night at around 21.30 I was listening to a Nightjar churring on the Downs at the back of Woodingdean. It moved a few times but could still be heard on and off for around 20 minutes.

26 May 2016 Sheepcote Valley, Brighton   more...

At the top plateau heard reed warbler in the middle of large area of tall cow parsley. Seemed to be accompanied by one or two others. Miles from any reeds. I think others have commented on this phenomena of misplaced reed warblers recently so thought I would share. There was a pair of stonechat looking like they were defending a territory there as well which also seems a bit of an odd habitat for them.

A very pleasant evening at Pulborough Brooks RSPB with Sunday's Garganey still present on north brooks with Mandarin, Peregrine, 2 Little Ringed Plovers and a Barn Owl present. Then out to the heath for fly-by female Nightjar and a barely glimpsed churring male. (Graham Jenner, Alan Baker & Jon Winder).

26 May 2016 Ashdown Forest   more...

22km trekked over 6 hours for precious little return on investment. Seven Woodlarks, 1 Tree Pipit, and the usual Stonechats in the old airfield area. Nothing of note elsewhere except for a Cuckoo calling at Old Lodge.

27 May 2016 Early morning Cuckoo   more...

A Cuckoo calling in woodland to the north of Sussex Way, Burgess Hill, between 06.20 and 06.30 this morning. It is at least ten years since I have heard one in this location.

27 May 2016 Singing on the Common

Yesterday evening {20.20 to 22.00} we listened at Wiggonholt Common and heard, at 21.00, a tawny owl eerily hooting and, at 21.40, a nightjar magically churring, but no woodcocks at all.

25 May 2016 SOS mid-week walk   more...

A lovely day out today with 10 or so SOS members at Woods Mill. The day started off very well with a Turtle Dove sitting on a wire for 5 minutes before flying. Blackcap, Whitethroat, Nightingale and Cetti's Warbler where all singing. Great Spotted Woodpecker and Goldfinches where also seen. As we moved round we heard the Cuckoo and Turtle Dove calling in the distance. We then moved on towards the South Downs Link where Yellowhammer, Skylarks, Swift, Swallow, House Martin and Reed Bunting where seen. Out on the little pond there was a few Mallard, Coot, a few Lapwing and 4 Little Egrets. A Kestrel was hovering briefly before moving on and soon after a Peregrine turned up to have its lunch on the telegraph pole. Just before the Downs Link path a pair of Reed Warbler shows briefly. Along the south downs link a Buzzard was around over the field. In the hedges their was Bullfinch, a Lesser Whitethroat, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Whitethroat and possibly a Garden Warbler which was never seen to be sure. Out on the Brooks there was a group of 7 Greylag Geese and a Reed Bunting. As we made our way to the car park we saw House Sparrow, Collared Dove and a Song Thrush. All in all it was a lovely day out with great people and I would like to say a big thank you to Val and Audrey foro helping to reorganise the walk at the last minute.

24 May 2016 Wirehopper??   more...

Scrutinising a skein of (12) Canada Geese flying over the house in Bishopstone Village revealed the 'pack' being led by a lone Barnacle Goose. Got to be allowed as a garden tick, surely?

24 May 2016 Turtle/collared doves

The Turtle dove, which for a week or more has been complicating the mating lives of the Collared Doves on the lawn at Alciston, was today joined by a second Turtle Dove. I had hoped this would reduce the tension, but so far the two Turtle Doves have spent most of the time being aggressive to each other - maybe they are both males.
