The Oystercatcher has disappeared....nest unoccupied and the egg no longer! I suspect a fox overnight but I have no evidence.
The Swallows seem to have given up on their nest building in the Spit hide and strangely appear to had started making 4 nests in the adjacent rafters to last years nest but no signs of the birds being present today or yesterday.
A few Curlews about today and some very high flying Swifts moving west...I would never have seen them but for being attracted by some noisy gulls flying overhead.
The most exciting and noisy 'birds' today were the Red Arrows giving a display over nearby Goodwood!
