Non Pagham Spit news

Just arrived back from a couple of days in London. Found a load of noisy Rose-ringed  Parakeets outside our hotel near the Greenwich Maritime Museum....they were  VERY noisy and I'm not too sure I would want them in my Pagham garden on a permanent basis!

The Sussex Bird Report for  2011 was awaiting my return and what a fantastic record this is....congratulations are certainly due to all those involved in this mammoth production, a wealth of information....all 313 pages! I noticed there were only 13 records of Rose-ringed Parakeets in Sussex in 2011 but I recall seeing them many years ago in Church Norton on a fairly regular basis. Perhaps its just as well they didn't colonize our area in view of there squawking calls!
