Pagham Hbr: Church Norton: Dave Potter reported 2 Long-tailed Ducks offshore but I couldn't locate them. Otherwise 4 Eider, 1 Slavonian Grebe, 5 Great Crested Grebes and at least 20 Red-breasted Mergansers on the sea and 3 Red-throated Divers flew west.. (AH)
North Wall: The 2 Ruddy Shelducks were still present with Common Shelducks, out in the harbour and viewable from the Salthouse sluice, although they eventually drifted out of view. Other birders present reported that they had earlier been on the Ferry Pool. Also seen were a Kingfisher, a couple of hundred Golden Plovers and what must have been about 2000 Lapwings; something kept spooking them but Chunky and I couldn't see what - possibly it was a Merlin reported by other birders (OM).
This morning on Pagham Lagoon were eight Goldeneyes including two full males. Also here were a pair of smart Red-breasted Mergansers, some 30 Tufted Ducks, a Pochard, two Gadwall, a few Med Gulls and Water Rails kik-calling in reeds at eastern end (ARK/SOS website).
