Another day at Pagham.

Once the drizzle had ceased I made my way to the Spit hide and on the way noted three Goldeneye on the Little Lagoon (2m,1f)... here's a male

As I looked out from the hide a Great Northern Diver came in with the tide...a nice surprise... terrible photos but the light was bad and I had the wrong lens!

A nice bird to have on your  'patch'.

Also present...
Grey Heron
Great Crested Grebe


Returning later to try to get better shots of the GND resulted in the bird being a long way off...but I was rewarded by a visit from a Kingfisher...

Kingfisher...what a cracking little bird!

In the afternoon quick check of the harbour resulted in an obliging Curlew..
Curlew in the late afternoon sun.
...and another.
