Following yesterdays excitement with the appearance of a Wryneck there were many visiting birders but THE bird failed to show up.

However, there was plenty to see, both in the bushes and on the mudflats...all  well reported on the Birding on the Selsey  Peninsula blog.

There were a number of Chiffchaffs around the Lagoon area together with a  Stonechat....
... in early morning sunshine. of several.

Further along the North Wall there was a Little Grebe in the usual spot...I just liked the reflections!

and a number of Moorhens ...tree climbing!

 Unusually, there was a Sanderling in Whites Creek which reminded me of my holiday in Suffolk last week where I also found a couple of Sanderling on a weed covered outfall in company of a single Purple Sandpiper...
