25 Jul 2017 Pulborough Brooks   more...

A lot more water on the Brooks after the recent rain, with West Mead quite full again. After a quick scan which produced nothing but Greylags, a more detailed look produced a pleasant surprise in the form of four Wood Sandpipers together; although I only saw three until they took off and disappeared into the distance going South. A Hobby was hawking dragonflies at Winpenny seemed to be quite successful as it was often seen in the talons to bill posture. Young Chiffchaff, Whitethroats, Lesser Whitethroats, Blackcaps, Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers could be found around the trail, and a Green Sandpiper was in front of Little Hanger hide. At least 14 species of butterflies, including Clouded Yellow and Silve-washed Fritillary.

From the Hanger I found 5 Black-tailed Godwits, 4 Redshanks, 2 Green Sandpipers, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Little Egret and 2 Shoveler.

25 Jun 2017 Gull hybrid?   more...

This is late because I have been puzzling over it. I saw this gull alone on the shingle opposite Marine Drive West in Bognor Regis. At first I was struck by its isolation from other gulls. Secondly I noticed that its legs and beak were unusually dark. Yesterday I had another look at the picture and realised that it has the head of a Mediterranean Gull and the primary feathers of a Black-headed Gull. So I began to wonder is it a hybrid. Would that not solve all the questions including the isolation?

21 Jul 2017 RSPB Broadwater Warren   more...

We have a couple of family events coming up at Broadwater Warren over the summer with a family wildlife ramble on Saturday the 29th July and our 10 year anniversary event on Saturday 19th August. If you are inter ested in coming along to have a look at some of the wildlife that calls the nature reserve home please check out our website rspb.org.uk/broadwaterwarren. It's a quiet time of year for birds but kingfisher and grey wagtails have been seen on the pond in the last week and several woodlark families have been seen feeding on the paths. We also recorded over 50 species of birds in one day including picking up redstart on our bioblitz a few weeks back.
