Pulborough Brooks

This evening on the North Brooks, with the occasional shower and sometimes blustery wind, the sky was full of House Martins. I couldn't count them, but everywhere I looked the sky was speckled with them. At times they were right in front of me as I sat in Nettley's hide. One or two Swallows were also seen.

A good number of wildfowl were on the increased water levels, with 2 Pintails (my first sighting since 8th April), probably 50+ Wigeon, a few Shoveler, and plenty of Teal, Mallard, Canada and Greylag Geese. The regular Marsh Harrier was seen making the ducks nervous. There was a few Snipe about, and a single Green Sandpiper on the new scrape out of Nettley's hide.
