28 May 2017 Nightjars and Woodcock at RSPB Broadwater Warren   more...

Very nice to bump into Barry Wright, Kent County Recorder, at Broadwater Warren looking for Nightjars. We reckon we heard 3 churring males on the western heath and a roding Woodcock also flew overhead.

29 May 2017 Nightingale   more...

More of a non-sighting really, fished at Bernies lake yesterday (just north of Ashington). In the previous few years there have been at least 4 nightingales singing on and off all morning but this year not a sign of one (a new solar farm is in the field next to the lake) but we did have lesser whitethroat, and cuckoo.

28 May 2017 Three Cuckoos together at Waltham Brooks

No less than three Cuckoos were found sitting on a low wall at the sewage works at Coldwaltham at about 8pm. One sang, but the other two were silent. The latter two were mobbed by a small unidentified bird and soon flew off, but the first bird remained on the wall. Other species seen during our very pleasant evening walk around the Brooks included at least four singing Cetti's Warblers, a very fine male Stonechat, and two Nightingales in full voice; one near the railway line, not far from the railway bridge at Brook Lane, and one mobile individual in scrub also along Brook Lane, back towards Greatham Bridge.

Cetti's warbler moving in reeds and trees in Fishbourne Creek. Too quick for photograph but recorded song.

28 May 2017 Arundel WWT   more...

A visit of about seven hours with interruptions produced only 63 species for BirdTrack. At least 5 Red Kites moving SE. Cuckoo being mobbed by Reed Warblers. Brood of five Mute Swans mingled with seven Shelduck young; the two sets of parents had a barney over who got which chicks, but then settled only 2m apart. The Shelduck pair also chased a Heron in flight, the drake tweaking at the Heron's tail. Black-headed Gulls mobbed a swimming Stoat as well as the more usual Heron, Herring Gulls and Carrion Crows, Stoat retreated. Part of a Blue Tit brood watched leaving a natural nest hole; nestlings at one nest box coming to entrance to be ifed.Juvenile Robin in post-juvenile moult already.

26 May 2017 Unusual Stonechat at Shooters' Bottom   more...

A friend and I observed a Stonechat on Friday afternoon that was slightly longer and leaner than the usual male Stonechat. It appeared black and white with very little orange on its upper chest. A continental race type bird or perhaps a Siberian bird? Would be interested to hear what any of you think.

Further to my previous posting a further 3 Red Kites drifted south east over my garden at 14.20 but much higher this time.

28 May 2017 Ashdown Forest   more...

A pleasant morning in the sunshine around Ashdown Forest. Several singing Woodlarks, Stonechats and Linnets with young. Also 2 juvenile Crossbills, many singing Tree Pipits and several Redstarts as well as all the usual fare. No sign of any Spotted Flycatchers though.

27 May 2017 Honey Buzzard?

Interestingly, I've just discovered that a honey-buzzard was seen flying over Folkestone on Friday afternoon. (See their Recent Sightings). My confidence has risen!

27 May 2017 Honey Buzzard?   more...

I was really hoping that someone else might have seen the very large raptor that glided slowly over Eastbourne town centre (Hyde Gardens) just before 4pm this afternoon, setting off an absolute commotion amongst gulls and jackdaws. I'm almost certain it was a honey-buzzard but I don't feel confident enough to bet my life on it. (I've never seen one before so had to look it up. Right shape, right size, right markings - very distinctive.) Surely somebody else saw it as it headed north??!!!

27 May 2017 Yet more Nightjars on Chapel Common   more...

This evening was even better than Wednesday evening, and I thought that was as good as it got! There were at least four pairs on the two main heather and short birch tree areas on the common and perhaps even more because we did not manage to investigate the heath area next to the meadow on the south-west side.There were also 2 pairs of Woodcock flying about and croaking too. Some Song Thrushes and 2 pairs of Stonechats called too, one Tawny Owl called as well.

27 May 2017 East Dean   more...

A sea-watch with Richard produced relatively little (outlined below) and Seaford Head was virtually birdless (at least in terms of migrants) but a Firecrest seen calling continually behind the bowls club house at East Dean was some reward for the effort.

27 May 2017 Arundel WWT   more...

Not as sunny as yesterday. Excluding hybrids, 70 wild bird species BirdTracked, with some interesting breeding evidence. Willow Warbler still singing. Swifts scything across square; one really buzzed two Buzzards, tearing past one and then the other for several minutes. As high tide approached a Redshank came onto site briefly. A Heron fishing around one of Black-headed Gull islands was mobbed. The Heron managed to catch a swimming rodent. Water Voles identified at several points around site. Blue Tit nest in box at centre is proving popular with visitors. Swallow collecting feathers. Two Black-headed Gull pellets contained many molluscs.

27 May 2017 Seaford seawatch

I joined the already established John King, Matt Eade and Bob Self at Seaford and watched from 06:00-10:30 seeing single Great and Arctic Skuas, Shag, 423 Common Scoter, 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls, a few terns and a handful of auks. Excellent company and enough passing to keep one's interest.
