Although dull, cloudy and cold and not suitable for photography it was an interesting quick walk around Pagham Spit this morning....my local patch.
Firstly several Mediterranean Gulls on the Lagoon and then a pair of Avocets in the harbour. The Purple Sandpiper seen a few weeks ago is back on the 'little' lagoon and showing very well at the eastern end. On the sea a Red Throated Diver was fising just off the shingle bank and all the usual waders with distant flocks of Golden plovers on the mudbanks in the harbour. Ducks included Teal, Wigeon, Shelduck, Pintail, Goldeneye and a few distant Red breasted Mergansers.
Thats it for 2008....Happy New Year to all my readers ...all 2 of you!!!!!
