Spring has arrived



A wander from the Pagham Spit to the North Wall produced Whitethroats,Lesser Whitethroats, Willow Warblers,Swallows,House Martins and well hidden Reed Warblers. The resident Cettis Warblers and Reed Buntings were very vocal and the nesting Little Egrets were 'gurgling' whilst a Little Grebe was chattering in rife...a wonderful cacophony of sound.

...and yet there is still a Purple Sandpiper with the small Turnstone flock on the Little Lagoon...surely he must return to his Arctic home soon!

Lovely shot of the egret, isn't it quite rare for egrets to nest in the uk?
