17th August 2015 Cooden Beach

Black Stork 1 juvenile Sussex 353

Juvenile Black Stork over Little Common, Bexhill (Ian Standivan)
Ian's great image had proved incredibly gripping ever since he obtained it on Saturday morning but on our fourth attempt it now proves nicely representative of our scope views of it as it leisurely flew quite high in the sky from Cooden Beach to Little Common. Many thanks to Matt for not only tracking it down this morning but still being present to pick it out for our mid-afternoon views shortly after our arrival on site. After several close misses over more years than I care to remember a great species now to have seen in the County.
