Another 'first' for Pagham !

Siamesed Brent Geese have been seen over Pagham Harbour This extraordinary sighting has been witnessed by a Chichester Observer reader, David Illman this week. Despite their unusual anatomy they did not seem disadvantaged. This poses puzzles for scientists. How did the twins originate? They would surely have to come from a double- yolked egg.  Such a phenomenon is not unusual.
More details can be found in this weeks edition of the Chichester Observer and is supported by Davids visiting birders please look out.

I have been out early this morning and most of the Brent Geese have gone but a good look at those remaining did not reveal this unusual pair. Perhaps we should prepare for a mega twitch today!
