Selsey Bill: Nothing moving at all - just 3 Great Northern Divers and 50+ Common Scoters offshore.(AH).
Wednesday, 20th November: A cold, fairly miserable grey day, with rain most of the morning and early afternoon. I decided that it might be worth a sea-watch, but I didn't arrive at the Bill until 0940, where I found Andy House bravely keeping a lone vigil, doing his best to shelter from the wind and rain. To my surprise, Andy had been in situ for an hour and had seen a fair variety of species, so I togged up in full winter plumage and settled in for a decent watch. In the event Andy stayed for another hour; there was nothing special (4 Avocets and 3 Goldeneye about the best), but just enough moving to keep our interest alive - and we eventually covered five hours between us!
Pagham Hbr: Church Norton: The Spoonbill was still in the harbour this morning, but not much else out of the ordinary in a quick look. Around the churchyard - 8 Jays, 10+ Blackbirds, 2 Song Thrushes and 3+ Goldcrests (AH).
At least one Twite with a flock of Linnets at the very end of Church Norton spit. On the sea this morning 7 Eider, 1 Shag heading east, 17 Common Scoter, 2 Velvet Scoter and 1 Slavonian Grebe (Ivan Lang).
