A 'first' for Pagham Spit (for me!)

Having watched Pagham Spit for 30 years it always amazes me that something different can turn up...not neccessarily a rarity, but unusual for this beach.  Red Legged Partridges always seem incongruous on the beach but this morning a covey of Grey Partridges! As I was walking back from the hide two birds appeared on the path by the lone apple tree and I assumed they were Red Legs but no, they were Grey Partidges! As ever, not ready with the camera, but nevertheless a couple of very long distance, heavily cropped shots as proof!

A Willow Warbler was feeding up on the apple tree (a magnet for migrants) and afforded a couple of shots in the sunshine.

 A Whimbrel was feeding out on the saltings....sorry, no photo.
