SUMMER HASN'T GONE YET!!
The sunrise from our window this morning looked somewhat wild and I didn't expect the day to pan out as well as it did. A quick early morning walk around the Pagham Spit produced the usual Brent Geese along the shoreline,a superb Kingfisher and more surprisingly a Greenshankon the Lagoon. The long stay Spoonbill was loafing with Greater Black Backed Gulls on a mud bank.
During the afternoon a visit to the Salthouse on the North Wall produced a few late Swallows and a Clouded Yellow and lots of Painted Lady butterflies. The unseasonally warm weather really is producing some surprises.
