Pulborough Brooks RSPB

A sultry summer's day. Phil and I met up at Pulborough Brooks, where we were greeted by two Woodlarks - one singing - over the field by the visitor centre. Most of the action was on the North Brooks from the Hanger Viewpoint, where we had two Green Sandpipers, a Little Ringed Plover, a female Mandarin with four juveniles, two Stonechats, three House Martins, three Redshanks, six Avocets, nine Lapwings, two Wigeon and three Egyptian Geese. Along the trails we encountered a handful of Nuthatches, Bullfinches and Treecreepers, and a Grey Wagtail flew over.
