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.
