Ringtail Harrier.
Another stroll with Nigel today over the brooks produced my first Hen Harrier of the Winter. Having said that, it didn't feel at all like Winter as it was decidedly warm in the sunshine. We started off with seeing a late Peacock looking for a spot to hibern...

November Wall.
I was cursing this morning as the weather was fabulous and I had to take Pen for a hospital appointment. However, when we got back home Pen was tired and wanted a snooze so she told me to clear off, in a roundabout way!! I decided to head up to High and Ove...

More Hiding.
Following last weeks successful session with Phil in the hide, we decided to have another go, especially as the weather was meant to be a little better with less of the harsh sunlight and patches of light cloud promised. This is particularly helpful when ph...

Autumn Jay.
It has been such a long time since I had the camera out for a decent session, so I was really pleased when Phil suggested an attempt at photographing the Jay. This Autumn has been very poor for Acorns, this is a food source that the Jay particularly likes, ...

Western Conifer Seed Bug.
On Sunday the weather was really dull most of the day. At one point I was sitting looking out of the patio doors feeling very bored when I spotted a bug of some kind walking up the glass on the outside. Having a closer look I saw it was a very attractive in...

A Case of Deja vu.
In May last year I came across a larval web of the Small Eggar moth. This is a very rare species in Sussex with it now being thought to be extinct in West Sussex, and no sightings in East Sussex since around 2010, until my find in 2017. During May this year...

Two Short Sessions.
I've only managed a couple of short visits to the patch this week despite the wonderful Autumnal weather.  The first visit was good seeing several female Wall Brown busy laying eggs in the grass tussocks. Hopefully this will give me several hours of fun loo...

Down the Levels.
On Wednesday I managed to meet up with Nigel, who was keen to show me the colony of Willow Emerald Damselfly that he had found on Pevensey Levels. We have both been expecting to come across this species over the past few years, but Nigel spends much more ti...

Copper Evening.
On Monday evening I managed a very quick visit to one of my favourite Small Copper colonies. This has been a very successful area for me over the past few years, but with it being a few weeks into the 3rd brood I really thought that all the best specimens w...

Spring Reeling Gropper.
Back in the long forgotten Spring Matt helped me see and hear a fabulous Grasshopper Warbler that we saw at pretty close quarters as it performed the famous 'reeling' call. It was an extremely early morning start and the sun was not even showing when the bi...
