RM Canal – Pett Level

First visit to the canal for about 10 days – back to work and a quick walk to Winchelsea turned up quite a few interesting birds.
Restricted time & magnification prevented me from identifying all the waders on Carter’s Flood, but there were Snipe, Ringed Plovers, Black-tailed Godwits, Dunlin, Green & Wood Sandpipers. Along the the canal were Wheatears, Whinchats, Common & Lesser Whitethroats, Blackcaps, Reed & Sedge Warblers and a Kingfisher, while 2 noisy Hobbies were circling overhead.
