Next was Fishbourne Creek and the tide was right out. In the very small channel a Spotted Redshank was seen along with the more usual Waders. In the vegetation a Jack Snipe was flushed along with 2 Common Snipe. Alot of Brent Geese were in the channel but didn't bother looking for the Brant.

At Ivy Lake a Bittern performed well, at first distantly but whilst scanning the Ducks a while later it flew within a few feet of me, a shame i wasn't ready for it though. A fem. Goldeneye was on one of the small pools aswell.
A brief visit into Petworth Park was worth it with the 2 Egyptian Geese on the northern lake, 4 Siskins and a large flock of Redwings.
