|Looking towards Church Norton|
Firstly the privilege of meeting Tony Marr on what he told me was his traditional annual Boxing Day visit to Pagham. At the time he was admiring the Mediterranean Gulls assembled at the end of the off shore spit. As many will know Tony was a founder member of the Sussex Ornithological Society 50 years ago and held posts in the early years of the Society of both Secretary and President. He now has special interests in both Norfolk and Harris in the Hebrides.
Secondly the sight of huge flocks of waders, wheeling over the harbour....a magnificent spectacle.
