Pulborough Brooks RSPB

A couple of hours with Andrew at Pulborough Brooks this morning was thwarted somewhat by the extent of the recent flooding. The whole site is basically a massive lake and the complete opposite to the parched state it was in earlier this year - it seems like it has to be one extreme or the other! A Harris's Hawk was the least expected sighting, a couple of Egyptian Geese and a few Shelducks were alongside a typical assortment of winter wildfowl, including Pintail. Passerines included a singing Mistle Thrush, a Siskin, a Fieldfare, two Stonechats, a Treecreeper, a couple of Nuthatches and small numbers of Redwings and Bullfinches.
