Amberley Wildbrooks

It was hard going at Amberley after work this evening, with migrants hard to come by, perhaps due to the work that had been going on there today. There were trackers mowing and the ditches on the north side had all been cleared. Highlight was a flock of c60-70 hirundines feeding around the abattoir, comprised mainly of House Martins, but with a few Swallows and the odd Sand Martin mixed in. At one point they surrounding me as I walked along the path. 3 Snipe flew up from the brooks and headed off east, and a Great Black-backed Gull was following the river north. Other notable sightings were a Willow Warbler, a Blackcap, a few Chiffchaffs and a Red Kite.
