West Sussex 23/2/16

Was at a loss of what to do today so I took advantage of the nice weather and headed west. I wanted to see the Bewick's leaving their roost at Pulborough but there were no Swans.......good start. I then basically wandered around various sites willing spring to get a move on, though singing Woodlarks and Dartford Warblers were semi-signs, as were tens of displaying Common Buzzards.
A respectable 76 species seen without too much effort.
Totals are: 

The Burgh
Barn Owl - 2
Corn Bunting - 6
Lesser Redpoll - 4
Red Kite - 3
Mistle Thrush - 1

West Dean Woods
Little Owl - 2
Brambling - 75
Mediterranean Gull - 2 over with B-h Gulls
Red Kite - 4

Heyshott Area
Dartford Warbler - 2
Woodlark - 1
Siskin - 20+
Crossbill - 1 heard only
