Wheatears, Whitethroats and Whinchats!

A still slightly misty morning on Pagham Spit was rewarding.
Highlight was two stonking male Whinchats and a female.

 Irresistible birds to photograph!

Several Wheatear were on the Spit and near the hide...
Two Whitethroats were feeding in the gorse by the Lagoon and whilst photographing the Whinchats  I heard the song of a Reed Warbler from deep inside the thick cover of ivy and a more distant Lesser Whitethroat by the Little Lagoon. Several Willow/Chiffs were present.
Med Gulls  and a pair of Little Tern flew over the interesting Spring morning.
