Bignor Hill and Waltham Brooks

My first trip to Bignor Hill for some time was a pleasant one. There were few people around, it being a monday evening, and I spent a lot of time looking down at flowers rather than up at the birds, although I still recorded singing Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Whitethroat, Song Thrush, Greenfinch and Yellowhammer. A flock of c50 Rooks comprising many fledgings was feeding in a field. A Drinker Moth was seen on some Crosswort (so called because it's often spotted drinking dew) and a Carpet Moth was spotted.

On the way home I stopped at Greatham Bridge where the tide was low and I could see what I assume is the invasive Pennywort on the riverbed. A Kingfisher was spotted and Nightingale and Reed Warbler were singing.
