Amberley Wildbrooks

I headed up to Bignor Hill first thing this morning, but it was shrouded in fog, so I headed back down to Amberley. There was a murky mist all morning, but despite this I had my highest species count for Amberley since April with 50 recorded. There just seemed to be a lot more birds around generally with a good selection of migrants including a few Blackcaps and Willow Warblers, loads of Chiffchaffs, a Sedge Warbler, 3 Whitethroats, a mobile Redstart near the wet wood, 3 Yellow Wagtails and a Hobby. The cream-capped Marsh Harrier was present again as were 2 Ravens that have been regular recently. 3 flyover Lapwing were the first I've seen here since mid-summer.
