Pulborough Brooks

I'm in trouble again! I went to Pulborough Brooks by myself and once again I saw a stoat. Every time I go there without Gill I see stoats and she has still never seen one. She warned me before I left, "DON'T SEE ANY STOATS!"
I was at the place with the pipes where I had seen them
before and I wanted to see how much better the photos I took then would have been with the new camera I have now. I started taking some close up pictures of the pipes, and when I looked up there was a stoat. It was leaping and rolling all over the place and seemed to be really enjoying itself.

Take a look at the video.

The place seemed a lot busier than the last time I was here with hundreds of Canada Geese and Greylag geese on the brooks with several Ruff and Snipe about too. There were dragonflies everywhere and I saw a couple of Hobbies hunting them, as well as a family of green woodpeckers hunting ants in a field. There are a lot of Spotted Flycatchers on the reserve at the moment and you can see them darting out to catch insects before returning to their favourite perch.
