A final look....

Yes, a last look around Pagham Spit late afternoon and if anyone  had visited the harbour for the first time they would have been amazed at the sheer numbers and variety of birds visible from the Spit hide. Waders included Dunlin, Oystercatchers, Redshank, Turnstone, Curlew, Grey Plover, Golden Plover (600+) ; Ducks   inluded Wigeon, Teal, Mallard, Shelduck, Pintail, Goldeneye ; Gulls included hundreds of Greater Black Backed, Herring, Common, Black Headed and on the off shore spit Mediterranean Gulls....some already assuming their black heads! All these birds spread out across the mudflats in considerable numbers together with hundreds and hundreds of Brent Geese making a din of a noise.
 ...and this is my local patch!  fantastic!
