Pulborough Brooks

It was a fine evening at Pulborough Brooks where the Red-necked Phalarope was still bringing the in crowds. There were also about c250 Canada Geese being very noisy, and the Lapwing numbers are increasing. I was hoping to see my first Pintail since April but alas couldn't pick any out despite their being reported this week. I did note a Dunlin, 2 Green Sandpiper, 3 Black-tailed Godwit and a Snipe. I could just about make out a Wheatear from the Hanger, and out of Little Hanger found a Whinchat. My favourite bird of the evening, though, was a Sedge Warbler skulking about along the wetland trail.

I sat on the river bank for a while and watched a flock of about 120 Lapwings as it made flashing shapes in sky. 


There were a few Stonechats about, a Kingfisher, and on my walk back a very noisy group of Bullfinchs making almost Jay-like sounds, something I've not heard before.


One of the Hawker dragonflies I think
