    In Woodingdean the Buzzards usually get chased off by seagulls and/or crows but over the back of Portslade the seagulls don't seem to chase them.

      I think Iím correct in saying some Red Kites were released in the Lewes area a few years ago
      Iíve seen one over in Isfield near the Laughing fish Also over the Lakewood area of Uckfield
      That makes a lot of sense. Iím sure that one lives close to the Rainbow at Cooksbridge because I have seen it a number of times as I driven past.

      Seen about half a dozen round sussex in the last year or so. I remember 10-15 years ago when Buzzards started arriving in Sussex, and they now seem to outnumber the Kestrels. Just keeping my eyes peeled for a White tailed Eagle from the IOW
      A White tailed Eagle was seen at Rye harbour recently. I saw the picture on social media and it looked more like a plan (size wise) than a bird. Small mammals beware!

      Seems to be loads of Jays around here (Cheshire) at the moment, and a couple of weeks ago I heard my first Cuckoo for about 12 years.
      Haven't seen a Kingfisher yet this year, that I recall.
      There are at least a couple of resident Kingfisher pairs on the stretch of river I fish regularly and another on one of the lakes locally..........not managed to get a pic yet as they flash by way too fast !

      Haven't seen one for quite a few years, and was wondering where they had gone - then yesterday in Hawkshead....

      The other common bird that seems to have decreased is the Chaffinch.
      Used to be on our feeders all the time when we moved down here 20 years ago. Hardly see either now. Actually more likely to see Bullfinches and Goldfinches at Jakarta Towers.

      In more cheerful news our Second brood of Robins have fledged so I can empty out the Pot by our front door where they were nesting. Where and why birds nest never fails to amaze me. We have a perfectly good nesting box up the top of our wall so no chance of a Cat getting to it. Was used by Blue Tits for several years but not for the last 3, have discovered nests in our hedge and as mentioned in a Pot near the front door which would be much riskier!
