Some photos from my first visit

Hi all,

I made my first trip out to Pulborough Brooks on Bank Holiday Monday after seeing the great variety of birds being seen there and having spoken to Rocking Robin who I know from the Elmley reserve on the Isle of Sheppey.

Here are a few photos from the day...

The highlight of the day for me though had to be a double raptor showing of 3 Common Buzzards and a Peregrine. Initially one Buzzard flew low directly overhead.

This was closely followed by the Peregrine.

Then suddenly 2 more Buzzards joined the first and we stood there in awe as they circled directly above us, catching the thermals and slowly soaring higher and higher, until eventually they disappeared into the clouds.

I'd love to know how high they were but it was amazing to watch (apart from the stiff neck afterwards). A great end to the day!

Thanks to Rocking Robin for the advice about visiting too. Cheers mate! Hope you had a good weekend.
