Half Term Birding and More...

Postby Myathebirder » Thu Nov 03, 2016 7:48 pm

In the half term, last week, I saw my first Great Grey Shrike at Ashdown Forest. I got good views of it as it perched on a small tree and then dived down out of view, presumably to catch its prey. I have also entered the Cairngorms Nature Young Presenter competition with a video, my first, that I made about Fungi.

The video and post can be seen on my blog: http://www.myathebirder.blogspot.co.uk

Winter arrivals in abundance at Church Norton

Postby Myathebirder » Wed Nov 16, 2016 8:14 pm

On Sunday I went to Church Norton in Selsey, winter visitors were in abundance with over 100 Brent Geese. I also spotted my first Slavonian Grebe not too far off to sea.

My first Rose-Coloured Starling up the road!

Postby Myathebirder » Fri Dec 02, 2016 6:45 pm

At the weekend I spent my morning on Sunday pacing around a housing estate 5 minutes down the road. I eventually found the Rose-Coloured Starling that had been with a group of Starlings and managed a decent shot, which was featured on the Rare Bird Alert weekly round-up. That afternoon I also went on a roost ringing session, where we caught quite a few Redwing.

A Great End to The Year!

Postby Myathebirder » Thu Jan 05, 2017 8:38 pm

Last week I visited Pagham Harbour. I managed to see 3 lifers which were Red-Breasted Merganser, Common Scoter and a Red-Throated Diver, as well as over 1000 Brent Geese soaring above my head! Overall it was a great end to the year!

It's definitely turning out to be a Waxwing winter. A new blog post on seeing my first Waxwings on an industrial estate in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

Pulborough in the snow!

Postby Myathebirder » Fri Feb 17, 2017 9:02 pm

Last weekend I visited RSPB Pulborough Brooks in West Sussex. It was very cold and it started snowing quite heavily when I was there! Birds were in abundance and my highlights were seeing my first wild Stoat and 2 Peregrines!

World Wildlife Day

Postby Myathebirder » Sat Mar 04, 2017 10:01 pm

Yesterday it was World Wildlife Day with the theme of 'Listen to the young voices' so I thought I would write a blog post on my views on conservation and how wildlife has been a part of my life.

Check out the brand new look to my blog, which I recently updated! My latest post is about a couple of hours spent birding in Ashdown Forest where I had great views of Woodlark. I also saw and heard my first Tree Pipit, Redstart and Cuckoo of the year!
