Hail's View

An afternoon trip to Hail's View under clear blue skies was fairly quiet, just a couple of small waders seen in the air with the Lapwing which were probably Dunlin, and a lovely tri-colour plumage Marsh Harrier. 2 Buzzards were perched up together by the shepherds hut. Bird of the trip was a Red-legged Partridge singing by the old ash tree, which I later was able to scope across the shooting field. It felt like a fairly unexciting tick until I mentioned it to Matt who said they are quite uncommon at Pulborough. Looking at my Pulborough records I have only recorded them twice, two birds in April and May 2019, and on both occasions by Wiggonholt church I think. A Peacock Butterfly was my first butterfly of the year.
