Sussex Scrapbook ~ Nature walks throughout the year

Pulborough Brooks

Time for another visit to one of our favourite Sussex sites. We tried to get there by train today but they were all cancelled because of engineering works, so we got the bike out and braved the icy weather once again. It was well worth it, as the place was very quiet, and the mixture of bright sunshine, frost and mist made everything look very special. We watched as a sparrowhawk glided across the south brooks, sending up lapwings and wigeon as it went. The colourful sunset came as we walked back along the Arun and it was a beauty! We finished the visit off with a London Pride while warming up in front of the fire at the Oddfellows Arms.
