A beautiful morning ringing at Cissbury

Postby Myathebirder » Mon Apr 04, 2016 7:11 am

Yesterday morning I went out ringing at Cissbury, Findon (it is about 30min away from where I live). I ringed a Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Greenfinch, Blue Tit and Dunnock.

Yesterday I went on a 2 and a half hour walk around Ashdown Forest and today I made a quick visit to Weir Wood Reservoir.

Walking out onto Ashdown Forest the joyful sound of Chiffchaffs continuously calling was what I heard through out my time there with the occasional burst of song from a Blackbird or Wren. As we walked through some conifers out into a clearing I could see a bird bobbing along in the grass. Looking through my binoculars I could see it was a brown streaked bird, it was a Tree Pipit...

Bird Ringing at Cissbury

Postby Myathebirder » Tue Apr 19, 2016 4:57 pm

On Sunday I arrived at Cissbury, Findon to do some bird ringing. Overall it was a great session for the variety of species we caught. I also saw my first Red-Legged Patridge which was a bonus!

BTO Bird Camp 2016

Postby Myathebirder » Fri Jun 03, 2016 10:42 am

Not on my patch but thought I would post anyway- At the weekend I travelled to Thetford, Norfolk to take part in the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) bird camp. The bird camp was organised for young birders to inspire them to further their interest in ornithology by taking part in different activities and birding in several locations. It was also great to meet so many other young birders! Kindly, the Cameron Bespolka Trust (http://www.cameronbespolka.com) had funded the event so it could take place.

Birding Whilst Camping

Last week I went camping at Blackland Farm in East Grinstead. Whilst there I kept my eye out for birds as well as their calls, the result was quite good!

Birding at Pagham Harbour and Church Norton

Postby Myathebirder » Mon Oct 17, 2016 6:56 pm

On Saturday I went to Pagham Harbour as well as Church Norton in West Sussex to do some birding. The birds have built up in numbers since I last went as winter is slowly creeping in, groups of around 100 Redshank and Lapwing were present on Ferry Pool. Highlights were two birds that I haven't seen before, Turnstone and Mediterranean Gull.

Autumnal Fungi

Postby Myathebirder » Fri Oct 28, 2016 7:48 pm

Over the last couple of weeks I have been searching for fungi at my local parks whilst walking my dog.
I have been quite successful and managed to photograph quite a variety of fungi.
