Today, Monday, I took John Gilbert’s U3A group down the Rye Track and we clocked up an impressive 33 species. The icing on the cake was finding Siskins by the smelly ponds on the way back.

Debbie and I did a recce visit the day before and had a raptor fest of Kestrel, Buzzard, and a possible Peregrine

All that after having garden visits from a Sparrowhawk on the seed feeder and a Green Woodpecker that my sister spotted on the wooden fat feeder.
