We then moved on to Ashdown forest were we enjoyed watching at least 6 Redstarts which gave very good views, there was also a few Redpolls about and 6 stonechats and lot's of Whitethroats around, a Woodlark was picked out by dad sitting in a dead tree then there was two singing and displaying which was very nice to see, on the way back to the car some guy told us that there was a tree pipit in that tree over there displaying at times, we got good views of sitting down and displaying whilst it was fanning its tail out, also dad had a house martin go over.
At Weir wood reservoir We scanned the north banks for Wood sandpipers but only saw one Little ringed plover and then dad picked out a Wood sandpiper feeding along the edge to far for a photo but we got good views through the scope.
After a long weekend birding we decided to head home for dinner.
Other year tick during the week.
