This week I decided to visit a local RSBP nature reserve, Pulborough Brooks. I had not been to this venue before and was very excited to visit somewhere new.
This particular reserve is on the heart of the Sussex downs and boasts spectacular views across wetlands to the neighbouring villages and countryside.
It wasn’t long before I was rewarded with a siting of the nightingale. With the help of the volunteers at the reserve, who had spotted it and pointed it out to me, I was able to get a photograph of this tuneful little bird.
The reserve have down a lovely job of giving information to visitors. As you go around there are chalk boards, telling you what to look for in each area. They also give you fascinating facts such as the myths and legends associated with each species.
