A possible Stork over Mt Caburn at 1.45pm, seen from a train by Matt Eade. Sounds like it could well be the same bird as seen over Preston Park, Brighton earlier this morning.
One to add to the list: ‘Great Birds That Have Probably Flown Over My Head (Without Me Noticing)’.
And ratcheting down the excitement a few notches…. Yesterday, during a brief stop at Arundel Arboretum I heard a singing Siskin – perhaps they’re commoner in summer in this part of Sussex, but there does seem to have been an unusual spate of county records in recent weeks, as reported to the SOS site.
