Hedgerow colours

In a hedgerow near Doleham Station today I noticed some bright pink shapes and closer inspection found them splitting open to reveal bright orange berries – they are fruits of the Spindle and are poisonous. For all you need to know about Spindle CLICK HERE

Another good Friday bird

Snow Bunting
Janet Richardson has found and photographed another good bird on a Friday. “How lucky am I again, on the way home today we stopped at Pett Level and found a Snow Bunting on the sea wall behind the Smugglers Inn. It was not at all bothered by people or dogs walking by. We have never seen one before so very pleased.” Janet found and photographed the Grey Phalarope last month.
