Kris Gillam found this Shore Lark at Sovereign Harbour last November. Surprisingly it has opted to spend the winter a little further along the beach at Pevensey. It’s quite a busy spot and although generally tolerant, it can prove difficult to find. I came upon it on the 5th time of trying since Christmas, a little further west from it’s favoured spot on the beach, which is opposite the Normans Bay Campsite.
The bird was in the company of a couple of Greenfinch and fed happily until an approaching dog walker moved it further east and lost to view.
