Rain stops play.

A walk towards Pagham North Wall produced a splendid Kingfisher in flight over the marshes. From the Salthouse a Greenshank could be heard calling and not too far away 2 Spotted Redshank fed in the muddy fringe of the main channel. Numbers of Teal are now increasing and it won't be long before the first Brent Geese arrive....usually about September 20.
A lone Wheatear flitted along the harbour shoreline showing off his brilliant white rump and the resident Peregrine Falcon was preening on his usual spot on New Island...and then, all too soon, a heavy shower sent me scuttling for shelter!
