Field Trip Report RSPB Pulborough Brooks on 15th December 2023

We were lucky and the weather wasn’t too bad for this time of year. It was midday by the time we’d finished in the first hide so we headed back to the café for coffee and lunch. While there someone came in to say that a White-tailed Eagle was eating a Canada Goose. Window space was immediately filled with binoculars but we were apparently all too late.

  • Buzzard
  • Mute Swan
  • Canada Goose
