19th February 2015

Thursday, 19th February: A day that started quite brightly, albeit with a cold and brisk southerly, before clouding up and generally deteriorating...

Selsey Bill: (0810-0900hrs) SSW F5 (AH)
Great Northern Diver - 4os
Gannet - 1W, 6os
Red-breasted Merganser - 1W
Mediterranean Gull - 6E
Common Gull - 3E
Stock Dove -1W (well offshore)

Church Norton: Very little new - highlights were 4 Goldeneye, 38 Pintail and 24 Black-tailed Godwits in the harbour, a Stonechat by the horse field and half a dozen Long-tailed Tits in the bushes. Otherwise there were plenty of the regular wildfowl and waders on the rising tide, though only four Brent Geese were seen. (AH)

Curlew (above), Wigeon, Pintail and Teal at Church Norton (AH)

Ferry Pool: Almost exactly the same birds as yesterday, including big flocks of Lapwing and Wigeon, but most birds were at the far end to shelter from the wind. (AH)
