During todays early morning walkabout I flushed a single Fieldfare from a bramble bush. It made its raucous call and headed over the harbour in a northerly direction. I can't remember ever seeing one here on Pagham Spit before. A few fly over in cold weather but there is very little to encourage them to feed and stay! 3 Lapwings flew in from the sea and headed North...they must have come from France as it was early morning and the sun was just rising.
Later in the day I noted 5 Slavonian grebes from my sitting room window and realised again how fortunate I was to be situated in this location. I checked my 'species seen from the window' and noted it was 102...not bad as far as window lists go!
