The North Wall has a wide variety of habitat hence a wide selection of birds and again as I strolled along by the Breech Pool I realised how fortunate we are in actually living in this location...literally on our doorstep!
First up, feeding on the mud, an Oystercatcher....
|A Black Tailed Godwit in winter plumage|
|...but a few retaining some of their summer plumage|
On the other side of the pool a Spotted Redshank preening
alongside a few Dunlin
A Grey Heron flies in....
...settles down and starts fishing.
...and all that could be seen was this!
|I noticed a couple of Teal in eclipse plumage on the pool...a sure sign that Autumn is on its way!|
As I was just standing by the Salthouse a bird suddenly flew up on to the fence surrounding the horses field...a Juvenile Green Woodpecker.
..but the colour on the back of the head and nape showed no resemblance to its cousin!!
It too, eyed me cautiously...
I finish the blog today with a crop of this photo...a superb bird.
See what I mean about variety of wildlife....Pagham Harbour takes a lot of beating!!
(all within an hour and a half)
At 5.30p.m. I looked out of the living room to see this....
