Force 8 winds have continued on and off all day. Late yesterday afternoon I was able to get a shot of a Scaninavian Rock Pipit in front of the Pagham spit hide but todays highlight has been a Black -Necked Grebe on the Lagoon. A very attractive bird in the sunlight showing a bright red eye and staying in the company of several Little Grebes.

Two superb drake Goldeneye with 3 females in attendance plus a magnificent Red Breasted Merganser and 100+ Mediterranean Gulls added to the spectacle on a very windy (and cold) afternoon.
