Cold weather movements

A quick look around Pagham Lagoon and the Spit before the heavy rain set in showed that a considerable number of ducks had arrived from the frozen North. 7 Goldeneye on the Little Laggon was unusual (6 females and 1 lucky male...flirting! ) and Red Breasted Mergansers plus a few more Goldeneyes on the main Lagoon. Teal and Wigeon predominated but Pintail were also much in evidence.
Reports from my son that Redwings were visiting his garden in Worthing prompted nme to look out for them here in Pagham but to no avail.
Most surprising was a Song Thrush in full song in a tree to the north of the Lagoon!
