Warnham and later, a surprise bird in Petworth Parkland

I had some shopping today so popped into Warnham.. It was generally quiet... from the Woodpecker hide few birds as they warden and his merry band of helpers are working to introduce new feature in the feeder area.. promises to be good.

Loadsa gulls...

and the sheep keeping the grass down... lovely to see them..

Chaffinches have such lovely colours

Home for a bite to eat.. and the sun came out again.. didn't really want to drive far so went of to Petworth Park.. this is the main parkland area as opposed to the area around the house.

The sun was shining, the sky was blue... it was exceedingly windy and very slipper in the mud but... it was great to be out!!

AS stood and looked out over the lower pond, I saw 1 bird.. as it dived I thought.... hello.. this looks a bit different from the usual birds on the lake.. and

wooo hoooo.  a lone male Goosander - thrilled to see it

then the blue sky started to get darker and darker so I decided best to get back to the car.

Lovely afternoon out with a great reward!!
