Combe Valley Countryside Park

It was hardly the weather for it, but I drove over to Hastings to see Christian's new flat and explore his new patch, Combe Valley Countryside Park, with him in the early evening. It's an impressive site, like a little Stodmarsh! We opted against staying after dark to listen for rare crakes due to the conditions but we did have a hawking Hobby, a singing Cuckoo and a scattering of Cetti's, Sedge and Reed Warblers, as well as Reed Buntings, and singles of Little Egret, Buzzard, Kestrel, etc. It would be nice to revisit on a more birdable day.
