Another glorious morning on Pagham Spit!

Not too many birds about but plenty of wild's a taster!

As for birds, the Little Terns were busy feeding young on the opposite least 20 or so birds in the air.

   A Cuckoo was still present but proved elusive to photograph...a distant heavily cropped shot!
Linnets were few and far between and I only noted four  birds this morning.

 ...but the the Skylarks were in good voice..

Always good to hear...and see!
I guess the Hudsonian Curlew is still present as there were a group of twitchers on the Church Norton side...
The forecast is for a very hot few days! Summer is here!

During my evening walk  the Great Crested Grebe was sitting on its nest on the Lagoon...hopefully it will be successful. A Carrion Crow was watching close by.

Evening sunlight makes a real difference...just look at this Greenfinch on a telephonr wire....
Gold more than Green!
The Cuckoo is still lurking but I am still waiting to get a decent usually spots me before I spot it!
The very wary called three times.
Along the shore line the Ringed Plovers and their youngsters were feeding..another great subject in these lighting conditions.

Another hot day tomorrow!
