A Spring day

As I completed my BBS on Pagham Spit  I noted  at least 12 pairs of Linnets obviously prospecting for suitable nest sites, House Sparrows collecting nesting material and a pair of Ringed Plovers on the 'alert'.  2 Wheatears 1 Chiffchaff  and several Sandwich Terns  were the only recently arrived migrants.

Later in the morning a visit to theNorth Wall produced a pair of Ravens
Huge size , wedge shaped tail
...and the 'cronking' call

....left no doubt as to identity!
 A Reed Bunting was doing his best to attract a female

...and the regular Little Egret was feeding by the sluice gate

 ...but maybe it was a Robin stole the show this morning!

Thinking about a 'dip'...shall I, shant I?

Yep...straight in, upside down!

...thats better.
