About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Sunday 25th August SWW Pagham Harbour

After seeing 20 plus Yellow Wagtails in the cattle fields opposite the visitor centre, we moved to the ferry where the highlights were a Juvenile and Adult Med Gull. From here we went to Church Norton and picked up Curlew, Wimbrel, Ringed Plover, Dunlin and 2 Peregrins on their island. A walk round to the severals found a distant Spotted flycatcher and a Winchat in the horse field. Back at the Churchyard another Spotted Fly but distant.

A walk via Halseys Farm to the North Wall found little other than a Nuthatch (very rare to Selsey Peninsular). Stopping for lunch on the Breech Pool 60 Black-tailed godwits and a Spotted Redshank.

Out in the harbour 3 Yellow-legged Gulls another Spotted Redshank, Redshank, Dunlin, and Ringed Plover. Getting a text of a Wryneck at Church Norton sent us scurrying back to have a look. The same bush where we saw the Winchat I got a brief glimpse of the Wryneck, 20 minutes later it showed well on the fence that's number 276 in the bag.
