This week...on the Spit and at Arundel.

Pagham Spit  is looking good at present with the wild flowers at their best. It is always good to see the Thrift around the Little Lagoon area...

There has not been very much of interest in the moth trap this week but I am always fascinated by Buff Tips....such incredible looking moths with a fantastic camouflage especially on logs!

Whilst in the WWT at Arundel earlier this week I noted a number of nesting Black Headed Gulls with youngsters from the Sand Martin Hide....but no Sand Martins...regrettably.

Watching very warily a few feet in front of the hide.

Another on a nest.

A youngster in a very pretty setting!

Swallows were much in evidence, one pair posing repeatedly on a dead branch.

Great birds!
