Yesterday I nipped over to Hove to see the reported Long Tailed Duck. It was a very murky,foggy morning but it lifted quite quickly and I was able to capture a shot of the duck even though conditions werre far from ideal.Later in the day 5 Pochard (all drakes) arrived on the Lagoon....unusual for this stretch of water and this morning 8 Goldeneye were present (1♂ with 7♀).
5 Red Breasted Mergansers fished in the harbour entrance whilst Wigeon and Pintail were feeding on the low tide grassy mudbanks.
Large flocks of lapwings and the accompanying Golden Plovers still much in evidence.
