Pagham Harbour is the place to be!

Have just returned from 10 days in Cornwall and have decided that Pagham really does have a lot to offer ...birdwise!! Opened the front door and 15 long tailed tits descended from nowhere into our only tree ..a silver birch. 5 Swallows flew over the garden...late breeders presumably...52 brent Geese on the lagoon accompanied by 10 or 12 Wigeon and then a wander up to the harbour entrance and there, on 'tern' island, a Spoonbill!! Grey Plovers, Dunlin, Curlew,Turnstones throughout the harbour all looking resplendent in the Autumn sunshine.
That is not to say that Cornwall was disappointing with a Wryneck at Porthgwarra and a Bittern at Marazion but there is something about Pagham!!
