Another cold morning.

With the temperature hovering just above freezing point and a brisk north- easter it was on the chilly side at 7.45 this morning!
A quick walk around Pagham Spit, a brief visit to the hide and a return along the beach enabled 3 images as shown below... I may venture out again later.

A Curlew eyeing me from the main path

A Wigeon preening in front of the hide

Mediterranean Gulls retreating at my advance along the tides' edge...note the very pale underwings and no sign of any black on the wing tips...very diagnostic.
