Pagham Birder: The Blog

A regular account of the birds seen mainly on and around Pagham Spit, the Lagoon and the North Wall plus other birding exploits from time to time.
Any news of interest regarding the ongoing erosion problems on Pagham Beach will, from now on, be shown on my other blog together with general beach photos.. Click on the link... Pagham Beach Blog on this page.

I notice that the Handfast Tug has remained in a stationary position just off Horseshoe Bay, Isle of Wight since leaving Pagham Beach yesterday, presumably with Charlie Rock in tow, who I am told should return with a final load of Cornish Rocks next week. Is there a problem I ask?

Later...been talking to the Foreman, Harry and the answer is......"bad weather in the Channel, further west"!
More delays!!!   ....Handfast now in Portsmouth (14.15 hrs) Just seen Handfast passing Spinnaker on webcam 15.50 hrs leaving Portsmouth...on her way back to a mooring off I.O.W. (1700hrs).

...but work continues on the beach.....
