Selsey Bill/Pulborough Brooks (17/04/11)

Got to the bill at 6.30am and had a half decent seawatch along with some Selsey regulars.

Best of the bunch were:

5 Great Northern Divers sitting offshore.
dark phase Arctic Skua west
6 Fulmars
8 Whimbrels
1 Kittiwake
2 ad Mediterranean Gulls
2 Bonxies
6 Little Terns

It was then over to Pulborough Brooks to meet up with the RSPB group. The reserve was extremely busy and birds were few and far between. However, we did see 2 Nightingales, one of which perched at the top of a bush singing - right out in the open. A distant Green Sandpiper and Little Ringed Plover were also seen, however, the Grasshopper Warbler that was present refused to sing and show when we went to have a look.

Dropped in to Thursley Common on the way home but the only bird of note was a pair of Stonechat.
