Another visit to Pulborough Brooks

The purpose of this visit was to capture the definitive photo of a Nightingale....alert, rusty tail cocked, showing really well with of course good lighting, perfect exposure and crisp focus! They were singing lustily but most of the time high up and hidden in shrubbery. After a couple hours more birdwatchers arrived and I departed. A few photos but still not that 'perfect' one!

Nightingale in full flow.

The Little Ringed Plovers were still showing from the West Meads Hide and a distant Green Sandpiper was only identifiable with a 'scope...

 A bit distant!!
..actually  initially identified as it called in flight.
Shelducks on the move.

Not a perfect photo of a Wren with the out of focus twigs and branches spoiling it but nevertheless shows this diminutive creature in typical skulking or scuttling pose!
Several Chifchaffs were present some building nests

...and this Linnet was building a nest in the gorse immediately outside the door of the centre.
Quite a beakful!!
