There were 10 Great Crested Grebes on the Lagoon and just 8 Little Terns on the Church Norton spit; unfortunately they seem to have all given up breeding. Bad news too for the Oystercatchers nest near the hide...eggs gone and no sign of parents .
A few pics from this morning...
The Friends of Pagham Harbour met at the Salthouse at 6.00pm this evening and enjoyed a quiz, an interesting talk and some excellent refreshments. The sun shone and it was a superb summers evening.
...and as an extra bonus a Glossy Ibis cirled above us, flying out high over the harbour and then returning and suddenly spiralling down into the reedbed just SE of Breech Pool. (sorry only a compact camera with me! )
....and just for the record this Arctic Skua was harrassing the terns a couple of days ago just in front of our living room!
