over in westest sussex today... starting with the whoopers at barnham (possibly a sussex tick, can't remember), blanking on the dusky warbler, then up for the iping ggshrike which was seen swallowing a wing and head of its prey in one go, then lastly westdean woods where small groups of hawfinches were seen well.

impaled prey to the left of the shrike

still a bit too much water at west rise. in a quick visit i saw a water pipit, 2 marsh harriers (one is a new bird, 3rd of the winter) and two flocks of bearded tits each remaining faithful to their own strip of reeds.
