North Wall: A Short-eared Owl was along the wall before flying into the harbour to go back to sleep, and there were two Rock Pipits along the wall, too. Not too much was on the Breech Pool, just half a dozen Shipe, c40 Black-tailed Godwits and similar of Teal and Mallard, with very few small birds visible in the wind, bar a couple of Stonechats and a few reed Buntings.
Later on there three Green Sandpipers and a Common Sandpiper, as well as 40+ Golden Plover over (and 15 on the field), and a juvenile Peregrine. (E. Stubbs)
This evening there were 80 Golden Plover in with the roosting Lapwings. (AB)
A Short-eared Owl came off the sea at 12:00 before circling the paddock field just north of The Severals. Also seen were 40+ Pintail in the harbour, 10+ Swallows going east and, off the spit, a drake Red-breasted Merganser and 2 Gannets W. (E Stubbs)
Chichester GPs: Ivy lake complex - Very little of note here, just a couple of Goldcrests in the bushes. (BI)
Thursday, 15th October: A cold, grey day, with a brisk north-easterly and heavy cloud cover with just a hint of hazy sun at times......feeling ok in the sheltered spots but notably chilly in the open.
This afternoon there were three Stonechats along the Severals, and also a single Chiffchaff, six Long-tailed Tits and a Jay about. (CRJ)
Tuesday, 13th October: A bright, but very chilly morning, with the wind much brisker and from the north......and again clouding over in the afternoon.
