A watery sunrise

Early morning ...Pagham Beach.
   Shortly after this photo was taken the drizzle started and then the rain and later in the morning heavy hail.

As high tide approached I checked on revetment  progress and the sea seemed closer to the properties than ever!

Later the curve of the structure was becoming apparent and the line it will be taking is becoming much clearer ......still too close for comfort for the worst affected properties!

At 2.15 the clouds departed and the sun came out....time to look for the Kingfisher. was on its favourite spot but too distant for a decent photo....nevertheless a record shot!

A strangely confiding Brent Goose was on the bank at the far eastern end of the Lagoon and enabled a few close ups...I just hope it is well.

Brent Goose...unusually confiding

There is now a roving flock of Brent Geese in the harbour...about 1500 strong.
...and finally

Black Headed Gull in late afternoon sun.
