A hot summers day!

Birdlife was minimal but a Spit walk  showed  'work in progress' on a number of fronts. The Environment agency continue drilling to the west of the lagoon..

...showing the temporary road to enable vehicular access.

From the hide the valiant volunteers could be seen to continue rebuilding the steps at Church Norton.
See the Selsey Birders blog for July 8th.
You can almost feel the heat as they work in just about 80F

Oystercatchers on their high tide roost.

High tide at the 'old' harbour entrance.

Ground ivy in bloom.

The only birds along the shoreline were a pair of nesting Ringed Plovers but a dog walker with FOUR great dogs came along...all without leads and they had to scatter! This must happen time and time again during the day...what hope do they have!
