Spoonbill and wheeling flocks

Rachel, Keith and I were greeted by a chorus of Song Thrushes and a beautiful calm Saturday as we started our Sussex Birding Mini-Trip. We had a quiet start to the walk but a singing male Bullfinch was a charming sound and Goldcrests kept us entertained. Eventually, we found a pocket of activity, getting nice views of Nuthatch, Treecreeper and Marsh Tit in quick succession. Bonus birds included fly-over Siskins and a Raven.

Rye Harbour was our next stop, where wheeling flocks put on quite a show over the Flat Beach.
