Sunday 17 November. Megan and I took Cookie to Cissbury but it was disappointingly quiet. We saw both Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, 8 Long-tailed Tits, a Goldcrest and 5 Greenfinches with a few Song and several Blackbirds the only thrushes seen.
Saturday 16 November. Cookie and I walked around the Adur seeing 2 Oystercatchers, 69 Lapwings, a Knot, 9 Redshank, Little Egret, Kingfisher, 3 Sky Larks, 2 Rock Pipits and some gulls.

Friday 15 November. I took Cookie up to Lancing Ring where a small flock near the car park included 6 Long-tailed Tits and a Goldcrest. We walked around Steepdown which wasn't too pleasant in a cold and sometimes damp wind. Birds were keeping low but we did see (mostly in flight) 7 Sky Larks, 22 Corn and a Reed Bunting.
