An early wander in winter sunshine.

Just another day, cold and very frosty, windless! A great morning to be out and about around Pagham Harbour.
The light was just perfect for a little early morning photography so I set off in the hope of finding something unusual!
Alas, nothing rare or paticularly different to the normal run of things but there is always the opportunity of trying to improve on previous photos of  the more common birds...especially in good lighting. So whats wrong with Oystercatchers? If they were a rarity we would be madly twitching....just look at that long orange bill and what fabulous legs. Sometimes  referred to as the Pied Piper of the mud flats....

 Out on the shingle bar a Cormorant drying its wings...

Nearby a Little striking is that!  Birders would be jumping up and down if it was 20 years ago!
Turnstone on a sand bank...all fluffed up!
Just another day? Another great day....enjoy!!!
