Worthing and Thursley Common

  An early morning seawatch produced a Bonxie, seven Common Scoters, a Great Crested Grebe, a Teal, four Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 27 auks, 21 Gannets and 20 Dunlin off Grand Avenue in an hour early morning. A Sparrowhawk flew over on the way home.

Thursley Common with Phil delivered good views of a flock of 14 Crossbills, heard-only encounters with four Dartford Warblers, three Fieldfares, 11 Redwings and a few redpolls. Several Red Kites were entertaining as they whistled and tusseled overhead.

Later, a Peregrine was near the shops back home in Worthing.
