Pagham Birder: The Blog

A regular account of the birds seen mainly on and around Pagham Spit, the Lagoon and the North Wall plus other birding exploits from time to time.
Any news of interest regarding the ongoing erosion problems on Pagham Beach will, from now on, be shown on my other blog together with general beach photos.. Click on the link... Pagham Beach Blog on this page.

On looking out of the living room window  this morning a superb male Black Redstart appeared on the patio.   As soon as I had grabbed the camera, it was gone!  However later in the morning I tracked it down on a neighbours roof but again it only remained within sight for about 10 seconds and disappeared. I managed to get a couple of poor shots but hopefully it will stay for a few days to give me another chance.

A wander up to the hide and in the distance an egret which I believe to be a Great White...this is a very heavy crop.

Other visitors included a Coastal Survey team taking measurements with a GPS and a remote controlled  flying machine.

...the flying machine
One of several markers to enable the flying camera to locate  lat/long.

Although this blog is dedicated to the birds of Pagham Spit I think there is sufficient interest in the beach
erosion to include a few  photos and info which may occur during the next few weeks. I am informed that shingle will be replaced before the next high tides in November. Watch this space for developments.
