Bird Watching in Sussex


Rob Yarham, with introduction by Chris Packham


Even if you can't tell a hobby from a handsaw, the sight of a soaring bird over the Sussex Downs always lifts the heart. That's what seasoned bird-watcher Rob Yarham believes, and to help the rest of us to get more out of these life-affirming moments, he has chosen his top 20 Sussex birds and written an affectionate personal tribute to each of them. His descriptions of the birds and his encounters with them will inspire you to go out looking with new eyes. The second-half of Bird Watching in Sussex is devoted to a review of the best sites and places to find Rob's top 20, and many other fascinating birds: Sussex natives, incomers and birds of passage.
