Summer evenings are great for a quiet country walk ....Pulborough Brooks seemed an ideal venue and having arrived at about 6.30 we made our way to Fattengates and sat in perfect peace and quiet in the children's study shelter. Not a sound and no activity until a small robin like bird appeared underneath a bramble and showed itself for a few short seconds on a huge tree trunk the other side of the path...a juvenile Nightingale. It hopped momentarily onto a post and quickly disappeared from view.
Short and sweet but what a treat!
A Grey Squirrel was feeding in the wood*********************
..and a baby Rabbit was completely unaware of us as we returned up the zig-zag path.
Coot with single chick.

Crow family....all with open gapes, panting! It was a very hot morning!
