West Rise Marsh

Lovely and warm! It felt like spring - for a while - until the sun began to drop and hopes of hearing the Savi's Warbler briefly peaked before fading away. It was a pleasant evening nonetheless, with a nice variety of birds and a good natter with a few new faces. An adult Little Gull hawked over West Langney Lake and other highlights included a Green Sandpiper, a Water Rail, two Sedge Warblers, two Pintails, four Swallows, two Wigeons, five Shovelers, three Reed Buntings, seven Meadow Pipits and a Chiffchaff.
