Survey work

Arrived at Offham Marshes to find the whole site under several feet of water with the wooded area resembling a flooded forest in the Amazon and the ponds having been swallowed up under a huge sheet of water! A couple of Siskins were high up in an alder, a Buzzard flew over and Great Spotted Woodpecker was heard calling. I then went to Kingston to complete the late winter visit to TQ30Z. A couple of hours wandering around the village and up onto the top of the Downs was largely uneventful, the only birds of note being a pair of Buzzards, 40 Common Gulls, Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers and a couple of Redwings. My two winter visits to the square produced 36 species.
