Monday 24 November. A Peregrine was seen roosting quite low down on Southwick Power Station when I was on my way to work.
Sunday 23 November. Megan and I got wet and cold walking to Goring Gap and back from Worthing. With just 5 Brent Geese seen it was hardly worth it. Not that it mattered as we had a very pleasant family afternoon celebrating my dad's 90th birthday. Lewis Hamilton won too, brilliantly rocketing off the line.
Friday 21 November. A Peregrine was seen on Southwick Power Station when I was on my way to work.
Wednesday 19 November. 2 Redwings and 7 Fieldfares flew east over the house as I was getting my bike out to go to work.
Monday 17 November. I got wet cycling to work and thought it sensible to put a plastic bag over my saddle to keep it dry. It was a bread bag which local Herring Gull A4AH noticed and I was told be a colleague that the gull was attacking it. When I got there it had made a big hole in it. I'm not sure if the gull was clever (recognising a bread bag, it leaves my usual orange cover alone) or dim in not realising there was no bread in it? Our local crows are definitely clever as Megan told me that one had managed to get the lid off the plastic box the milkman leaves a box of six eggs in on a Monday, smashed into the egg box and broken into two eggs. The plastic box had until then been effective in keeping the egg box safe (after several successful crow raids in the past).
