27 Jul 2017 Yellow-legged Gulls on the Adur   more...

At low tide two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were on a sandbar in the /River Adur by the airport. Also Common Sandpiper and Whimbrel. One of the Yellow-legged Gulls was colour-ringed, most likely from a German/Swiss scheme. It is the first colour-ringed Yellow-legged Gull I have seen and takes my Adur total between the railway line and A27 flyover to 226 readings of 136 individuals of eight species. For anyone interested there are more details on with an example of each species and one that got away.

27 Jul 2017 Cuckmere Spoonbill

A Spoonbill preening in the beach scrape/lagoon (viewed from the west side river bank) and then doing what Spoonbills do best - standing on one leg with its head in its back. On my return walk I looked back across the lagoon but it had disappeared from view. Also a Greenshank on the ditches behind the west side small lagoon.

25 Jul 2017 Honey Buzzard   more...

Many thanks to all for conformation of this bird being a male Honey Buzzard. So nice to get a new garden species, a rare occurrence these days. Not a very good photo but I don't care....

25 Jul 2017 Raptor sighting north of Rye   more...

The photo shows a Honey Buzzard, the barring on the belly a clear ID feature of HB. Plus the long tail and small protruding head are all good features for this species.

26 Jul 2017 Common buzzard

Referring to Mike Brayshaw's entry below, this would be a common buzzard, a species which does commonly hover.

26 Jul 2017 HB

Looking at Alan Roffey's picture below it's a honey-buzzard alright (just look at its projecting small head, long tail and body barring) and its underwing pattern says it's a male, an adult I'd say. What a lovely one!

26 Jul 2017 Pevensey Levels Osprey

An Osprey seen flying quite close to the A259 at 7am this morning. It dived several times before finally catching a fish and heading off westwards. It flew up quite high (still carrying the fish) to escape the attentions of a couple of corvids and I didn't see it land anywhere.

25 Jul 2017 Time for a sandwich   more...

While sailing on Chichester Harbour near Birdham a calm spell gave me leisure to eat my lunch and (appropriately) admire the spectacular aerial skills of two Sandwich Terns repeatedly plunge-diving for fish close to the boat. They were ignored by six Mediterranean Gulls sitting on the water, their half-moulted black heads looking distinctly moth-eaten. Eventually the wind picked up and propelled me up Fishbourne Creek, where a rower (not me!) flushed some 80–100 Curlew from their high-water roost in the saltmarsh on the western bank. Driving home I had less leisure time to admire a Red Kite over Amberley.

25 Jul 2017 Bird of prey....ID please   more...

This bird flew over my garden this afternoon heading south towards Rye. I assume it's a Common Buzzard but have a little wish that it might be a Honey-buzzard. Any help would be good.

25 Jul 2017 Yellow Wagtails at Pagham

A pleasant evening stroll at Pagham North Wall produced a couple of extremely early yellow wagtails. An adult of vivid, lemon yellow,and a pale juv, solicitous of food. A possible second adult was seen nearby, along with some grey wagtails. The north fields offered excellent, extended views of two hunting barn owls.

25 Jul 2017 Brooklands, Worthing

Whilst riding the narrow-gauge railway on Diddly Dum (we were child-minding at the time!), on the lake was a pair of Little Grebes with three small chicks which often climbed upon one parent's back, guessed to be mum. a charming sight. Overhead at one time a Buzzard soared.
