Pulborough Brooks is known primarily for the variety of bird life that can be seen there (it is an RSPB sanctuary), but there is also a small herd of melanistic fallow deer that can occasionally be seen in the distance (it’s astonishing how they can simply disappear from view in the long grasses).
Once again I ventured off the main walks and cut across the paths to the Arun where a couple of little egrets were out and about.
The main proper sighting was this common sandpiper (at least I think it’s a ‘common’, seen from above from one of the smaller hides.
One last shot from that visit (Thursday), a fine kestrel who was perched in the wooded ‘heathland’ area which is away from the main nature trails (but worth investigating).
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. For the deer, egrets, and sandpiper I added a 1.4 MkIII extender.
