River Ouse Walk

Male lapwing in breeding habitat

Wednesday, 14 January 2015

Our January walk was along the lower River Ouse, starting at the recreation ground in Robinson Road, Newhaven and walking to Piddinghoe and back. The main river yielded 15 species, notably a flock of 120 plus lapwing. However, the only other wader seen there was redshank, and this bird was also found on the recreation ground. Various crows and songbirds brought the species count to 15, while the nearby ponds also yielded mallard and moorhen, woodpigeon and dunnock.
