A missed Mega!

Whilst wandering around Pollensa in Northern Mallorca last week a text message came up showing a Little Crake only a few miles from home in Arundel. I was 750 miles away as the crow flies!

However the Serins, Black Winged Stilts, Griffon Vultures and the rest were not bad compensation.

Back on Pagham Spit the Linnets are building nests and from a quick look a few Brents remain but all the winter ducks seem to have departed.  A Cuckoo was calling from the Sidlesham side of the reserve.

.....and of course the Little Crake had long gone from Arundel!
