Firstly, late news from yesterday:
R/b Merganser - 1E
Sanderling - 2E
Turnstone - 70 ob
Arctic Skua - 2W (1 dark-phase, one adult pale-phase close in)
Kittiwake - 25W
Pagham Hbr: Church Norton: Spoonbill (1st-winter) out in the very middle of the harbour and a 1st-winter type Marsh Harrier hunting over the harbour at around 11.15 were the highlights. About a dozen Blackbirds and 3 or 4 Song Thrushes around the concrete wall looked like new arrivals, but not much evidence of anything else (AH). Bernie Forbes and Dave Smith added a Firecrest and 4 Chiffchaffs to the list, but failed to find a small flock of 8 Avocets reported from Sidlesham.
