An unwelcome visitor...

..but still a nice bird.

 We have probably got more House Sparrows visiting our bird table than for the past 15/20 years and the Sparrow Hawks know it! This fine male dropped in this morning and just perched on the various feeders...waiting!

Just look at that eye!
What a bird!

I'm glad I'm not a Pagham Sparrow!

Saw my first Merlin of the Autumn yesterday going for Linnets over the Spit.

Winds of 70/80 MPH forecast during the next 48 hours....and  the rocks for the revetment are due from Norway...sometime! Had a vague note from Arun District Council yesterday....lets hope its not too late!

Fantastic Sparrow Hawk photos.

This blog is a very welcome addition to "blogosphere" and was well overdue. It's great to be able to keep a check on what happens in Pagham from our home here in Spain. Congratulations and keep it up.
