Just local at RSPB Pulborough Brooks

It was quite cool as I headed off this morning but got hotter as the day went on.  I'd heard there was a Pectoral Sandpiper and a Wood Sandpiper at Pulborough.

Well I managed the Wood but the Pectoral, had vanished before I got to Nettley's hide.... eh ho!

Loads of butterflies around today.... those I saw earlier in the morning were reasonably still warming their wings in the sunshine.

Saw a Green Woodie fly and lots of greylags... quiet other than that.

Just a few pics.

The feeders were as popular as ever with some of the usual culprits!!

Flutters everywhere..

Small skipper

Green Sandpiper...


One Little Egret

and whilst I was sitting watching, this Fallow Deer appeared followed by two young ones.. (the 2nd one wouldn't appear out of the long grass)

Peacock - wings open

Peacock - wings closed

This area of water had complete dried up....

Looks more like something out of the Wild West!

and a Babe!!

So that was that.... was going to Warnham for a photographic experiment but needed some shopping and it was getting hot...

A pleasant wander nonetheless!!

Thanks RR... so many flutters - it's great to see them all - finally!!

Roy - thank you.. the cattle are lovely to see... they always have cattle there it seems but not always the same breed.
