East Guldeford Levels

A lovely frosty morning yesterday , no wind , perfect for my usual East Guldeford Levels circuit. A lot more standing water than previously but no great numbers of either Golden Plovers or Lapwings-about 100 of both. 2 Egyptian Geese appear to be resident now. As usual at least 2 Buzzards; the usual farmland birds totalled 40 Skylarks, 16 Tree Sparrows but just one pair of Corn Buntings [pictured]. A walk round all the big stubble fields produced a lone Lapland Bunting-these could almost  be described as "usual farmland birds  here this winter. At least 3 Stonechats and 15 Fieldfares.

Great to receive  "The Flora of Sussex" by the Sussex Botanical Recording Society yesterday- a marvellous tome celebrating vast amounts of volunteer effort, including a little bit by me at EGL !
