It's November ...Part 2!

 A somewhat dire week weather wise with 29.5cm of rain recorded in my rain gauge. Fog, rain and today, wind, has made birding both slow and difficult. However at 4.00pm this afternoon the sun appeared briefly and a chance to 'air' the camera!

Brent Geese on the move....numbers have increased considerably this week.

Pintail and a single Golden Plover...I think!

From the Spit hide just to prove I'm still here!.....

Common Gull
Wigeon feeding at low tide


These grebes had me guessing initially..Red necked? but maybe just Little?

A long way off, poor light,wrong lens,heavy crop!
During best part of the week 4 Pochards still on the Little Lagoon, Kingfisher present,Green and Goldfinch flocks, Skylarks , Meadow Pipits and Pied Wagtail flyovers .Earler in the week I missed a Dartford Warbler and a Short Eared Owl...thanks Tim(sorry about the Pagham weather...better luck next year!)
