An interesting week for sightings around Pagham harbour but I have missed out on almost all of the excitement. Reports of interesting species seen in and around the harbour have included a Scoter, Slavonian Grebe, Eider, Gt Northern Diver, Glossy Ibis and Snow Buntings plus, plus.
My only success has been a Merlin on New Island...a long distance photo...
..and a pair of Peregrines
There was a brief encounter with a Water Rail at the south east corner of the Lagoon and an even briefer encounter with a Black Redstart on our neighbours roof top this afternoon but alas no photo let alone a poor distant shot!
Hopefully I will have more time on my hands in December but the days are short and there are always priorities of a domestic nature which 'have to be done'!
p.s. It is unusual to see two seals in the harbour ...one is very often seen entering or leaving the harbour or basking on a mud bank but two seen this week is exceptional.
