Any news of interest regarding the ongoing erosion problems on Pagham Beach will, from now on, be shown on my other blog together with general beach photos.. Click on the link... Pagham Beach Blog on this page.

A brief visit to the North Wall proved rather uneventful last week but a few photos below show I'm still about but birding has taken a bit of a back seat in recent weeks.
In the paddock...

Plenty of stonechats along the north Wall.
Juvenile Moorhen by the sluice gate.

Grey Heron...a familiar figure in the reedbed.

Brent Geese have been slow in arriving but small parties have been moving in since late September.

Wigeon numbers have been growing steadily although most have not adopted their full winter plumage yet....

My presence suddenly surprised this one and it made an impressive take off!
Curlew in flight

 This bird which suddenly came into sight certainly made me look twice...but it was only a Carrion Crow ( a leucistic one!)

Never mind...maybe something more exciting will turn up this never know!

Last but not least...Sunset over the harbour.
