Glynde again

More good stuff at Glynde of late.

On Sunday, a Red Kite reported at Mount Caburn (Peter Coward, per SOS sightings). There have been been quite a few around in the last few days, including a remarkable flock of nine together over Northiam in the East of the county. Is the Caburn bird just passing through, or (one of) the same as has been seen at Beddingham, Kingston and Berwick in recent days?

In Glynde village, a report of what sounds very likely to be a Nightingale singing in the evenings, as heard from the junction of the main road and Ranscombe Lane. [UPDATE: This now seems likely to have been a thrush (see comment below)]

And Little Egrets seem to be passing over regularly now, perhaps to feed during the day on Glynde levels. After the two I saw last week, there were two again at around 8.15 yesterday, and three today around the same time – all following the Reach.

One thought on “Glynde again

  1. The possible Glynde Nightingale could not be confirmed – perhaps this bird was an eccentric Song Thrush?

    But surely there are some Nightingales close-by somewhere….
