A Visit to Pulborough Brooks RSPB Reserve

Arrived before opening time but despite a few hours birding there was a distinct lack of activity birdwise. A Chiffchaff was singing down the zig-zag and a flock of Fieldfares was in the trees behind the big field. A solitary Pied Wagtail was the only sign of life at West Meads. The view from the Hangar was more rewarding with good numbers of Shoveler, Wigeon and Teal plus a group of Black Tailed Godwits. The oak tree was being hammered by a Green Woodpecker but was chased off by a pair of Jackdaws.A close view of a Wren was my highlight.
Up on the heath, again quiet, but a Great Spotted Woodpecker was feeding high up in a birch. It wont be long before the summer visitors arrive and the whole  place comes alive.

Here are a images ....
