A Warbler surprise!

Pagham Spit is probably looking at its best now with the Sea Kale in bloom. This morning was a 'perfect' sky,blue sea, windless and peopleless!

Sea Kale...shame you can't smell it!

A view over theLittle Lagoon  

However, very few birds about, but one surprise was a Reed Warbler singing from a gorse bush! It was very busy feeding and had obviousy just arrived from winter quarters and no doubt would soon be on its way to its more conventional habitat in a reed bed.
A pair of Shelducks were on the Little Lagoon on arrival but they soon moved on once I'd been spotted. Ringed Plovers along the beach were conspicuous by their absence and there is no evidence of breeding so far this year.
