>Pulborough Brooks


After what seemed like a wild goose chase of a journey(traffic accident blocking road) we arrived at Pulborough rather later than expected.
It was a wet and windy day today but we pressed on with the hope of seeing the resident Hen Harrier.


One of the four hides on the reserve
First stop was Netleys hide as the Harrier had been reported there earlier. We stayed there a good hour seeing various wildfowl including pintails, Wigeon, Teal, Shelduck, Mallard, Geese, Swan but no cigar on the Harrier.

Something for everyone

As it was raining sideways the hides were the best place to be! The wind was howling through the windows making viewing quite ‘challenging’
Driving rain
