20th April 2013 - Pulborough Brooks

I've probably said it many times before, but Pulbrough Brooks is one of my favourite reserves.  It's such a lovely place and a nice walk.  It probably helps that it's always been pretty much a glorious day when I've been there too!  Highly recommended.

One of the first birds we saw was a Nightingale, great!  First for the year and whilst a little covered by branches, sitting obviously on a tree.  We saw 4 overall with one obligingly hopping around on the floor for us.  There were plenty of Green Woodpecker around, with 4 sightings throughout the trip.  Whitethroat, Blackcap and Chiffchaff were also in plentiful supply but we were surprised not to see any Bullfinch.  A selection of Swaloow, House Martin and Sand Martin were all spotted.  Mammals were doing well here too - another mouse, many deer and hundreds of rabbits.  There was also a single Skylark singing away.

Trip list: 46

Whitethroat.  The best of about 50 photos, sigh.

Teeny tiny bunny!
