A quiet morning.

Pagham Spit always surprises! Some mornings it is alive with birds....Linnets, Greenfinches, Waders, Peregrines, Migrants. Other mornings are sometimes, but, rarely, dead. This morning was in the latter category. A lone Little Egret was fishing in the Little Lagoon but the bushes held nothing. A single female Wheatear on the beach and that was it!

During the morning I heard the flight call of Green Sandpipers and five flew in from the sea quite high overhead and during  late morning  four Swifts flew west.
I was pleased to note that some kindly soul had cleared the rubbish from the hide mentioned in my previous blog. Thank you whoever you are.
