Beach News

Beach Protection News

Work continued well into the evening yesterday and commenced at 6.30 a.m. today. A considerable amount of shingle has been moved and now lies in great heaps behind where the rocks will be placed.
Pagham Beach looking more like a building site!

More heavy machinery has arrived amongst which is a 'rock grabber'....quite a meaty looking piece of equipment.
The grabber.
Further signs have been erected and safety requirements!

and following our photo call yesterday an article on page 5 of the Bognor Observer  was published today 

Bird News

Brent Geese still arriving off the sea in small flocks (up to 20 at a time )
2 flocks of Curlew totalling 50 birds regularly come in off the sea at about 4.00p.m.and roost presumably in the harbour each evening.
Forgot to mention the female Black Redstart  visited us yesterday but is a very skittish individual!
Tried for the Snow Bunting that has been reported at Goring for the past few days but dipped out!
