Pulborough Brooks.. the sun shone

Had to take Mum to the doctor's this a.m. and it was beautifully sunny with blue skies!  I managed a quick trip to RSPB Pulborough Brooks around lunchtime.  Dozens of birds coming in now - all the usual suspects and great to see some Pintails.

I stood watching a Peregrine Falcon being mobbed by a couple of crows... there is a resident female at Pulborough.

I went down to the usual viewing platform to see her land in her favourite spot in the nearby tree.  Not long after she'd been there she took off for a hunt.... we then lost sight of her but not before she'd sent up all  birds from the water!

Just a few pics.... mostly the birds are far too far out to photograph so a very small number of pics today!

On the feeders outside the visitor centre..

As I entered the reserve a magpie was enjoying the sunshine...

Grazing cattle..

Difficult to know where the hair of the cattle ends and the grass begins :D

Not what I'd expected to see... I think it's The British School of Motoring!

One of the views of the reserve!

The sun didn't last but it was great whilst it did.. Pleasant stroll albeit short.
