Spoonbill near the Salthouse.

A Spoonbill has been reported for a little while in Pagham Harbour but until today I hadn't got near enough for even a record shot. This morning, however, was different and when I arrived at the North Wall the bird was in the main channel. Although photography was difficult against the light, a few shots were just about acceptable!
Wigeon numbers have increased considerably now and Brent Geese look as if they have enjoyed a good breeding season with several family parties in the harbour and a few with 4 young. Lots of finches moving west this morning and considerable number of Wood Pigeon flocks on the move.
