Pagham again....

Just arrived back from 2 weeks in Suffolk and a week in Norfolk....the weather has been too good for much migration but East Anglia never disappoints!

Back at Pagham there were 4 Wheatears on the spit today, 2 Rock Pipits on the tide line and a Chiffchaff in the apple tree. A very high tide produced few opportunities for wader watching as the saltings had  disappeared!

However heres a quick selection of some of the birds seen whilst on holiday.

Fiona..the escaped Flamingo now almost resident at Minsmere!

Spoonbill at Titchwell

Curlew Sandpiper at Cley
Mostly Knot and Godwits at Holme

I shall put some better ones on my Flickr site when I have more time to trawl through them next week.
