First stop was Henfield Levels to try and find the reported Bewick's Swans, but unfortunately i couldn't find them. Not much else of note was seen apart from 2 Bullfinches and a drk Gadwall.
Next stop was an undisclosed wood to try and get another Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. Arriving at the location a female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker soon showed itself giving satisfactory views. It was seen well several times in a tree next to me, but was always on the move.
Lesser Spotted Woodpecker
Next stop was The Burgh, but i was brought to a halt on the minor road between Amberley Station and North Stoke when i noticed a figure in a ditch. It was a Bittern and it showed very well, often standing right out in the open with it's neck fully extended.
Up on The Burgh the wind kept any bird activity to a minimum but still 5 Grey Partidges, ca 20 Corn Buntings and 5 Red-Legged Partridges were seen.
I went back to the undisclosed wood after The Burgh and soon re-located the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker in the same place, but it was always seen at a distance. Great day!!
