Pulborough Brooks RSPB 12/5/11

Successfully twitched the Temminck's Stint at Pulborough Brooks today after deciding not to twitch the Great Snipe in Norfolk. Hopefully a wise decision!!!

The Stint was being reported from West Mead but no sign there (apparently being harrassed by breeding Lapwings soon sent it onto North Brooks) apart from two displaying Little Ringed Plovers.

Found out a little later the Temminck's was on North Brooks so i dashed round there and had prolonged, but semi-distant views. It was with a Ringed Plover for a time then 2 Avocets. Also about were 3 + Hobbies scattered around the reserve.

(Temminck's Stint just about visible between the 2 Avocets)

  1. Glad you caught up with Temminck's for your Sussex year list. One of the avocets in the photo has colour rings on - will you be trying to trace where it came from?

  2. Hi Paul, many thanks for the text. I have sent the details off regarding the Avocet.
