Amberley Wildbrooks

 A brief lunchtime walk to Rackham Mill to view Amberley Wildbrooks produced 3 Marsh Harriers, at least 3 Red Kites, 2 Buzzards, a Kestrel, loads of Lapwing, c100 Black-tailed Godwit, a few Teal, and the strange pale Ruff. One of the Marsh Harriers was the wing-tagged Norfolk bird, another was a cream-capped bird and was perched on top of a Canada Goose carcus enjoying a meal, and the other was a lovely tricoloured individual. It appeared to be bath time for the Red Kites as they were frequently seen in the water. In contrast to Sunday the duck numbers were much reduced with just the Teal seen, and there were no gulls or any sign of the White-fronted Geese (although they probably were around). A few Fieldfare and Redwing were feeding in a sheep field, and a Bullfinch showing nicely in a nearby tree was a nice addition. Rackham Wood was very quiet.
