A couple of hours at Pulborough Brooks

I was surprised to hear a Lesser Whitethroat singing near Winpenny seems quite early for this species. It took me by surprise and whilst initially in deep undergrowth it suddenly shot up to an upper branch and I had to snap the shutter regardless of exposure being completely incorrect...hence a bit of a 'rescued' sequence!

There was an abundance of Blackcaps and one in particular gave good close up views....

Chffchaffs were very vocal but not very obliging...photographically!

A few Wrens were singing..loudly!

Blue Tits were nest building in earnest!

My least favourite goose was present in front of West Meads...

Egyptian Geese

A Lapwing was in reflective mood....

Showing off.

I think the rabbits had been busy! Nightingales as yet( not for me anyway) ...a good excuse for another visit in the next week or so!
