The Black Guillemot was easy to find in Sovereign Harbour, as were two Water Pipits at West Rise Marsh, but typically being very flighty.
Pevensey Levels were next and I started off at Horse Eye Level where I decided to step into a puddle that actually went up to my waist, as well as submerging half of my scope. After ringing out my socks and tipping the water out my boots, I carried on the squelchy walk. A Water Pipit was seen slightly better here, and two Marsh Harriers showed well. Little else here so I drove up to Lookers Cottage and stayed until dusk with Chris Ball where we enjoyed prolonged views of the Hen Harriers, a Short-eared Owl, Great White Egret and a Kingfisher.
