My first Sawbill of this Winter,

Female Red Breasted Merganser
This bird had presumably just flown in and was in the new channel just in front of the bungalows. Brents continue to arrive daily....
These Brents were a couple from a party of ten that flew in and landed very close to the RBM.

A pair of  Stonechats are still in the gorse along the path to the Spit Hide. Here is the male...
Earlier in the day I made my second visit to Cissbury Ring in a week to see, or better still, photograph the Ring Ouzels that many observers have been enjoying. Not a squeak! Third time lucky... hopefully!
On to RSPB Pulborough Brooks to check out the Grey Phalaropes reported for the past few days....another blank!
But.... there was a distant Red Breasted Goose on the Brooks with hundreds of Canada Geese....too far for even a record shot.
In reflective mood...sleeping Canada Geese...a tranquil scene.

More come in

On West Meads apart from more Canada Geese,Wigeon and Teal there was a single Egyptian Goose
