SUSSEX AND HAMPSHIRE


Woodlark

We started our day with Rob at a Sussex common and saw two Woodlarks which showed amazing, giving photo opportunities whilst watching the Woodlarks we also noted 2 Yellowhammers on top of a silver birch tree which was a nice addition to our day list, whilst enjoying ourselves watching the larks and Buntings the news broke out of the White tailed eagle in Hampshire so we had a mad dash to were it was being seen at the car park we had a flock of Chaffinches with one female Brambling.

We arrived at the White tailed eagle site just before 1 but there was no sign of the Eagle which was quite disappointing after about 30 minutes of scanning me and dad noted down a Red kite in the background with Common Buzzards then the pager went of saying the white tailed eagle has been seen down the road so we all quickly rushed there, when we arrived there was quite a big crowd of people watching the bird, all 3 of us got on the bird they we satisfactory views being able to see the beak when it turned its head towards us, we were hoping it was going to fly but there was no joy we watched the White tailed eagle for about 30 minutes and then it was time to head home so all in all we have had an amazing weekend
