    Spent a lot of time over the past couple of weeks at the local RSPB reserve at Pulborough. So much so that I don't even need to show my membership card at the desk now.

    Anyway here's a few badly taken photos of what you can see here.

    This is the view out from the Visitor's Centre




    Chaffinch - there's about 9 bazillion of them here.




    I don't care that the picture is rubbish - this is a Nightingale and to see one out in the open like this is rare and a privilege.




    Butterflies are everywhere here too.




    This is the view out from one of the hides.




    The local deer herd - fallow and muntjacs




    The boy loves it here too




    A wren. A long way away.




    I think this is either a Wheatear or a Lesser Whitethroat




    The pond outside the Visitor's Centre. They have Great Crested Newts in there.




    This could be a Chiff Chaff. Or any number of brown birds...




    This is a squirrel




    Over the past two weeks there I have seen Blue Tits, Great Tits, Chaffinchs, Chiff Chaff, Cetti's Warbler, Lapwings, Shelduck, various geese and other water birds, Nightingales seen and heard, Robins, Wrens, Blackcaps, Whitethroats, Adders (that's a snake :D ), Goldfinches, Nuthatch, Green Woodpecker, and this morning I heard my first ever Cuckoo!

    There's also a herd of Heelan' Coos there that they use to manage the land. :D

    It's my best.

    You really know your birds Dawn. I can point out things like Cardinals, Blue jays and Robins and maybe red wing blackbirds. Oh and Crows, but that is about it for my bird knowledge. Well, not quite true I can also recognize a few others.
