A trip to Lewes was abruptly curtailed by a sudden snow-storm: although it didn't settle, it was pretty intense for a couple of hours. A couple of Red Kites have been hanging around the cottage (along with the ever-present Buzzards) and, for the first time this visit, a Brown Hare crossed the meadow. Other all-day visitors include all the crows (apart from the one we'd most enjoy seeing) and numerous pheasants and partridges.

Linda and I took a short break with Linda's Mum in our favourite farm cottage near Findon, This was not a birding break, but nevertheless a few interesting birds appeared in front of the camera!
Pulborough Brooks was allegedly hosting some White Storks and White-tailed Eagles: all we found were Bullfinches, Chiffchaffs and lots of Buzzards, A stop at Cissbury Ring added Linnet, more Buzzards and a pair of Stonechats...

Yesterday afternoon, returning from a shopping trip to Norwich, we passed a small flock of Fieldfares by Bonds Lane: this morning the sycamore at the end of our garden was briefly full of Redwings, singing their heads off in the misty dawn sunshine.

Linda, Sue, Peter and I met at the Church for our monthly survey. We were hoping for some migrants (given the beautiful weather) but in the event there weren't any! Highlights were several Buzzards, a small flock of Siskins, several Flower Bees and a good flush of butterflies.
