A new local patch..

Having forsaken Surrey for West Sussex, my local (birding) patches have had to change. RSPB Pulborough Brooks looks like being one of them.

I went over this morning arriving quite early; very few cars in the car park and for the first 45 minutes I didn't see a soul.

Generally very quiet until this flock of Greylags took off.

Later on and further around, something in excess of 200 Canada Geese arrived on the reserve. There's something very magical about hundreds of birds filling sky with their incredibly loud flight calls!!

This is one of two Bulls.... he was bellowing quite a lot after he'd had this drink and I was rather glad of the fence between us!

Back to the visitor centre where Goldfinches were nibbling on teasels..

A good spot for small birds and several House Sparrows there.

Off home for a quick sandwhich before an afternoon walk on the beach as the tide was going out. The gulls I see now are more likely to be on the beach, as this one is, rather than around a pond.

A pleasant outing...

Nice to see the Goldies on the Teasels. I tried growing some from seed but I think they must have headed for Australia.

Hi Trica.

Cracking photo's as always, love the sparrow and Goldfinch, + of course the Gull LOL.

Fabulous shots of the birds on the teasel. That bull looks so sweet. Handsome fellow.
