Several sea birds have been found along the Sussex coast this week following the storm which have included Razorbills and several Puffin. There was a dead Guillemot on the beach yesterday but the one today was quite lively but had a nasty wound on its back.

I took it to the Westmeads Alpha Rescue Centre and hopefully it will recover.

The Slavonian Grebe continues to show well on the Lagoon and 2 Drake Goldeneye are accompanied by 3 Females. A Little Gull has been present for a couple of days but as yet I have failed to photograph it. Mediterranean Gulls are losing their winter plumage and the reported Glaucous reported yesterday, failed to show up . The Peregrine is being seen more often on New Island.
