Back at Pagham

After an interval of a few weeks on the blog, (due to a number of reasons), its back to my local patch watching.
It seemed quite quiet along the North Wall this morning save for a pair of Yellowhammers...

...and the usual contenders.

A decent flock of Lapwings
and a few Curlews a fly-by Kingfisher by the sluice gate(too quick for photo!)

Back on Pagham Spit there was a little more of interest....
 A pair of Stonechats...

 A flighty Chiffchaff in the apple tree

A distant Meadow Pipit (one of two)

Oystercatcher along the shoreline

A few Brent large flocks yet in the harbour
A pair of motley Teal (in eclipse plumage)

A few Little Grebe on the Little Lagoon

The ever present Turnstone

An over flying Cormorant

....and finally from last week

A Song Thrush...unusual on the beach,

 A Black Redstart!!
