West Worthing

As I stepped out into the garden this morning, a Serin announced itself as it flew low northeast! If lockdown continues like this, I could get used to it! Later, it turned out to be a good morning for flyover raptors with a low Red Kite my first for the garden, as well as a Buzzard and a Sparrowhawk. Two Siskins flew east and a male Blackcap made its way into my mistnet. Further sightings included a Grey Heron, two Cormorants, a Lesser Black-backed Gull, a Coal Tit, two Jackdaws and four Long-tailed Tits.
