Yesterday in the harbour the Black Brant was feeding in front of the hide and a Purple Sandpiper was initialy accompanying the Turnstones on the Little Lagoon before later flying to the beach.
Today, after viewing a long stay Scaup on Drayton Pit south of Chichester I returned to the North Wall to look for 3 reported Garganey. I found a superb male bird feeding with the Teal on the Breech Pool and learnt that I had just missed a Swallow!
The weather is superb...if only it could stay like this for the next three months!
Oh yes, and I dropped into the 'secret' Hawfinch location on my return from Worthing this morning and had a fleeting view of a male bird and managed to photograph a Nuthatch.
