Down by the River (late September 2011)

Sunday 25 September.  3 Little Egrets and the white-winged Crow were seen on an otherwise disappointing late afternoon visit to the River Adur.  Mill Hill was better with 3 Buzzards, 4 Stock Doves and a steady easterly passage of at least 300 Swallows. 



One of two or three 'white-winged' crows often seen on the banks of the River Adur.  They are more impressive in flight!

Thursday 29 September.  The Peregrine was seen on Southwick Power Station again while an evening visit to the Adur produced an adult Mediterranean Gull and Kingfisher.  The tide hadn't fallen as much as anticipated as I'd forgotten to add an hour for BST.  78 Lapwings were counted on Shoreham Airfield.
