|Redshank on the Adur|
Thursday 12 June. 8 Little Egrets on the Adur in the evening, the most I've seen there for some time, and Mandarin and Cuckoo at Greatham. I had 9 encounters of Woodcock on a survey on Lavington Common but probably only two birds were involved. Three Nightjars performed well and I had brief views of Little and Tawny Owls on the way home, a very enjoyable evening apart from the biting insects.
