    Took Steven and Nanny Lesley and neice Ellie to the RSPB reserve at Pulborough today. Had an awesome few hours there in beautiful sunshine watching and listening to birds. Steven loved it and we are now fully paid up members of the RSPB.

    Here's the geek list of what we saw.

    Usual stuff like pigeons, blue tits, great tits, crows, and jackdaws.

    More unusual things like chaffinch, green finch, grey heron, mute swan, and pheasant.

    Blackcap - my second sighting in 5 days. :D

    And first time spottings - nuthatch, lapwing, longtailed tits, and my best - a chiff chaff. :D

    And we also saw an adder basking by the side of the path -

    We're going back.

    :menta;: definitely got to go there!! I love nuthatches we had a pair in the garden for ages but they haven't been back for a couple of months, longtailed tits we get in flocks.

    We are also RSPB members now as well so we should get in free -

    I shall have to get an anorack and some adenoids :D

    I didn't take the camera. The birds would just have been specks anyway because they don't pose on nearby twigs for you. The centre lends binoculars to you but unless you have a camera with a lens a mile long then photos aren't really an option.

    Oh but Nanny Lesley took a photo of the adder.
