Wednesday 25 April. An early morning visit to Pulborough in the hope of seeing Nightingale looked to be going off the rails when I heard but failed to see individuals at Jupp's Viewpoint and the Hangar. A Whimbrel and the Black-winged Stilt were present from Winpenny Hide although the latter soon flew off to the North Brooks. I returned to the hangar where I saw the stilt and Black-tailed Godwit and heard the Nightingale again. Fortunately an hour at Fattengates produced a good view of a Nightingale. I also saw a Swift, Sedge Warbler, 8 Blackcaps and a Bullfinch.
