Winter Birding at Pulborough Brooks, Sussex

Thursday 22nd February 2024

The flooded marshes and fields that make up the RSPB reserve at Pulborough are home to thousands of wintering wildfowl such as Eurasian Wigeon, Eurasian Teal, Northern Shoveler and Northern Pintail which in turn attract numerous raptors including Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Merlin, Common Buzzard, Peregrine Falcon, Hen Harrier and in recent winters, several White-tailed Eagles!

Waders should include Black-tailed Godwit, Common Snipe and Ruff and the woodland and heathland bordering the reserve holds Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and Woodlark, the latter which can be heard singing on clear, bright mornings. The feeders adjacent to the excellent visitor centre attract Eurasian Nuthatch, Marsh Tit and Water Rail amongst others.

The reserve also has a fantastic tea-room serving home-made produce including some delectable cakes.
£45 per person (does not include entrance fees or parking charges)
