Over the Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK I managed to fit in trips to the Horsham Local Nature Reserve and the WWT's reserve in Arundel, both in West Sussex. The latter is run by the same trust that also manages the London Wetland Centre. The overall philosophy is similar, with a mix of exotic and indigenous species. At Arundel I managed to add another lifer - Tawny Owl - a pair of which had been detected in a large tree by some Black-headed Gulls that proceeded to mob them. I also got my second sighting and first photos of Cetti's Warbler, a species of which there are only a few hundred breeding pairs in Britain (all in south-east England).

First some of the indigenous species seen -

Cetti's Warbler



Common Moorhen



male Common Pheasant



Common Wood Pigeon



male Eurasian Blackbird



male Eurasian Bullfinch - a bird I have not seen in 50 years since I was a youngster growing up in north-east England



Eurasian Collared Dove



the ever photogenic European Robin



Great Tit



Mistle Thrush
