More good stuff from Paul Stevens, this time in Firle.
Today, a ringtail Hen Harrier just south-east of Blackcap Farm (beyond the Firle Beacon car park). Apparently it was disturbed by shooting and flew up high to the north.
A count of 80 Stock Doves is particularly noteworthy – there are often ones and twos around the park and elsewhere, but a group this size is likely to be one of the biggest flocks recorded in Sussex this year.
In the horse fields just north of the village centre, winter thrush numbers continue to build. At one point, there were at least 120 Fieldfares and Redwings today.
