The last day of 2008.

2 flocks of Knot roosting at high tide on the shingle bank...probably totalling in excess of 600 birds. At least 40 Skylarks feeding along the edge of the Little Lagoon...always nice to see considering their reduced numbers countrywide.
30 Turnstone plus Redshanks and Grey Plover also feeding beside the Lt Lagoon. 17 Shelducks viewed from the 'spit' hide plus a single adult Med Gull.
A huge flock of Lapwing was 'put up' in the distance towards Sidlesham and about 2/300 Golden Plover wheeled above them.
Weather much colder today with a brisk N/E wind blowing, making it feel much colder than the 42F.
to all my Blog followers.
