Cissbury Fields Avian Species Count

The avian species count is carried out by a member of the Shoreham and District Ornithological Society who is a resident of Findon Valley.
The member has provided the FVRA with the 2022 records and will continue to submit updates that will be added to this page when received.
This is a fascinating list of all our local bird life and I’m sure of interest to many residents – also helping to give a increase awareness of Cissbury’s environmental role and value.
