West Sussex (30/3/2014)
I then went to Church Norton where I had my first Willow Warbler and Blackcap of the year. At Sidlesham there wasn't much but I heard a close Cetti's Warbler but couldn't see it.
Nothing at Chichester GP's. At the Breech Pool there was a cracking summer plumaged Water Pipit, but the Spotted Redshank had been flushed before I arrived.
Next was Climping where I had excellent views of the Hoopoe in the hotel grounds and a bonus of a cronking fly-over Raven. Car parking at Climping is a bit steep - a pound an hour!
Popped into Dad's for a cuppa before going up to the Burgh where it was quite hard work but had another Raven, singing Corn Bunting, 6 Red-legged Partridges, Red Kite and the hope for Grey Partridge - a pair.
