Nothing new about BUT.....

...the sun did shine!

So, a chance to get out with the camera with a view to photograph the Goldeneyes on Pagham Lagoon. From time to time during the day there were up to five birds present...three drakes and two females. Here's a few shots.....

Two drakes keep each other company.


I put this shot on my Flickr account...'cos I liked it!

...and a duller female

 And a  Mediterranean Gull bathing

 ...jumping up and down in the process.

Apart from that nothing unusual but plenty of Wigeon, Pintail, Teal,Shelduck, Mallard, 900 Brent Geese a few Red Breasted Mergansers, Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe, a drake Pochard, Redshank, Turnstone, Curlew, Dunlin, Knot, etc. etc.
 Pagham Harbour really does take a bit of beating!
