23rd January, 2012. Pulborough Brooks, Shoreham Harbour & Burpham

We first visited Pulborough Brooks and had excellent views of the Water Rail, also Doreen saw the Firecrest whilst I was trying to photograph a weasel. Usual ducks including several Pintail.
Moved onto Shoreham Harbour to look for any white winged gulls but in fact gulls were very thin on the ground. Did see 3+ Purple Sandpipers and 10 Turnstone.
We then drove to Burpham, nice scope views of the Rough Legged Buzzard also 10 Common Buzzards,
31 Berwick Swans, and 4 Chiffchaffs & 2 Goldcrests around the sewage plant.
