A Tourist Attraction....or what!

An early and late(ish) wander on Pagham Spit ensured that I avoided the 'crowds' visiting this 'new' visitor site to photograph the revetment progress!

The early morning visit produced Peregrine, Kingfisher, Sparrow Hawk, Knot, Dunlin, Turnstone, Ringed Plover, Red Breasted Mergansers (3 in the main channel), Goldeneye +++

Late afternoon and a close view of a Merlin on a fence post next to the hide alongside a Kestrel...
(no camera, of course!)
I wonder how many of the visitors noted the variety of birds present on and around the spit.

Well at least it was quiet today as far as dumper trucks and JCBs were concerned and I am pleased to note that the Handfast Tug and Charlie Rock have got back to Falmouth and are now standing off the hopefully by the end of this week the last batch of rocks will have arrived and the work's hoping!
