31st January, 2015 Swanborough Sewage Farm and nearby Levels

Dull, overcast and cold morning with light drizzle. We first looked over the levels near Swanborough and then walked to the small sewage plant and then visited another section of the levels.

Both good numbers of Grey-lag and Canada Geese
White-fronted Geese 4
Barnacle Goose 1
Wigeon c300+
Teal 60 +
Shoveller 15
Great-grey Shrike 1 distantly on top of hawthorn bushes.
Grey Wagtail 1
Chiffchaff 12+
Siberian Chiffchaff 2 (Has to be the best year ever for seeing tristis in Sussex)
