Another quiet day

Little happening here today..a few Bar Tailed Godwits from Spit hide but little of interest to report. A couple of Chiichaffs have been seen on North Wall (thanks Ian)
However there was one interesting event but I don't know how it occured. I came  out of the hide and turned right along the top path and found on the ground a freshly dead Dunlin. It was totally undamaged with no sign of cause of death but it was still very warm! Eyes were open and I half expected it to revive but it showed no sign of life...a mystery death.

The Tern fencing is being erected on the extended shingle spit  today courtesy of Ivan Lang and his band of volunteers from the Nature Reserve and the only other notable is a Survey Ship partolling Pagham Bay most of the day.
