At mid-day I checked on Breech Pool to see if there were any waders following earlier reports and certainly the Ruffs were present plus Greenshanks, Dunlin and Blk Tailed Godwits
Along the beach just Gulls....
Not a lot else today!
Pagham Birder: The BlogA regular account of the birds seen mainly on and around Pagham Spit, the Lagoon and the North Wall plus other birding exploits from time to time.
|A Black Tailed Godwit in winter plumage|
|...but a few retaining some of their summer plumage|
|I noticed a couple of Teal in eclipse plumage on the pool...a sure sign that Autumn is on its way!|
|An off shore flock of Gannets moving west along the Channel.|
|White Storks were nesting in the pine wood and repeatedly flying in to feed their youngsters.|
|Large numbers of Little Egrets were breeding and a few Cattle Egrets|
|....the Great White Egrets|
Next stop was Nadrin in Belgium where birding was very poor and except for a distant Red Kite and a Short Toed Treecreeper (not photographed) little else was seen
