Monday 14 May. In the evening five Swifts were flying high over the garden.
Sunday 13 May. Megan and I took Cookie to Chantry Hill and walked along the South Downs to Rackham Hill seeing 3 Red Kites, 5 Buzzards, 2 Grey Partridges, 9 Sky Larks, 2 Meadow Pipits, 9 Yellowhammers and a Corn Bunting. Yesterday's Whimbrel was still on the Adur at low tide as well as a North Thames Herring Gull I had seen there in March.
