A Dull Morning?

Pagham Beach is really dull this morning...dull and cold but windless. From my window I can see 2 Eider Ducks feeding quite close to the shoreline and several Great Crested Grebes.
Having walked to the harbour entrance and spoken to a chap with a GPS monitoring the beach movement following a storm over the past weekend all I noted was a Peregrine on New Island, several Red Breasted Mergansers and a few female Goldeneye.The usual Brents,Wigeon,Teal and Pintail were present plus the gulls which included a few Mediterranean Gulls. Waders were much in evidence with Grey Plovers, Knot, Turnstone, Dunlin, Redshank and Curlew all present.
So although dull and looking pretty miserable the birdlife certainly brightened the place up...Pagham harbour never fails to please a birder!!
