Cissbury Fields Bird Count 2023

Cissbury Fields Bird Count

The bird 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 2021 & 2022 records as well as part of this years 2023 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.
