Pagham Lagoon: The putative Siberian Chiffchaff was present again this morning, though CRJ was not fully convinced by its credentials. It needs a bit of tape-luring if anyone has the technology.(AH)
A first-winter Iceland Gull was briefly on the Lagoon - found this morning just before 10 am, it settled on the water for about 15 minutes but something spooked all the gulls and it flew of with them to the west. (Bart Ives)
There were no birds at all offshore, whilst along the spit a few Skylarks were singing and a pair of Red-Legged Partridge looked somewhat out of place.
A big mixed group of Knot, Dunlin and Grey Plover were constantly trying to find a bit of dry land around the old harbour mouth on the big high tide, and one of the Knot fell off the metalwork and in the water and was unable to take off. Fortunately it managed to flap and swim its way back to the shore just as the gulls started to take note. (AH)
