Pulborough Brooks

We couldn't be bothered to go too far today, so we poodled off to our favourite haunt - Pulborough Brooks. We had a good days birding and we also met up with Wayne & Penny who had stopped in on their way back from Pagham Harbour.
Highlights of the day were a big flock of Linnets with some Redpolls flying with them, a Treecreeper (for some reason we don't see many at PB) and some Willow Warblers. The place seemed to be alive with woodpeckers today and the whole reserve was noisy with birdsong. If you want a full-scale dawn chorus, then get down there for sun-up.
The Hawthorn trees are also now in full flower and are filling the air with the smell of honey and there are swallows feeding over the brooks. Winter is just a distant memory!
