Park Farm, Selsey: There were 28 Curlews in the field on Manor Lane, even all briefly on the balancing pond, but not too much else was about beyond a Grey Wagtail, a Chiffchaff and a few Linnets and Goldfinches. (AH/IP/S&SaH/PB)
Church Norton: The two Spoonbills were roosting in the harbour again, and there were also c20 Brent Geese, c20 Little Egrets, a Peregrine and plenty of the commoner wildfowl and waders about, plus up to ten Great Crested Grebes offshore.
There was little evidence of visible migration, though a Wheatear was along the spit, about ten Stonechats were spread along the front and three Swallows and a few dozen Linnets, Skylarks, Meadow Pipits and Pied Wagtails were flying about, but not really with any great purpose.
Also, two Siskins were in the trees on the Mound, up to half a dozen Goldcrests were in Bluebell Wood, a Blackcap was along the Severals, two Mediterranean and two Common Gulls went over, two Shovelers were on the second Several and a Painted Lady, two Clouded Yellows and a Common Blue were among the butterflies seen.

Along the front there were three Stonechats, while the Whimbrel was showing well among the regular waders in the harbour. (AW)
This afternoon there were two Stonechats ad 20+ Reed Buntings along the wall, and a Kingfisher, eight snipe and nine Black-tailed Godwits around the Breech Pool. (S&SaH)
Chi GPs - Drayton Pits: It was peaceful here - rather too peaceful - with 30+ Pochard and a few Gadwall, plus 15+ Snipe, a Bullfinch, several Goldcrests and three Chiffchaffs being about the best on offer. Butterflies on the wing included several Red Admirals and Peacocks, two Painted Ladies and a Clouded Yellow. (OM)
There were three Green Sandpipers on the pool again, along with a Snipe, three Black-tailed Godwits, c150 Lapwing, c50 Teal, c30 Shelducks and a Shoveler, with a Kingfisher dropping in briefly, two Grey Wagtails over, four Goldcrests in the hedges opposite and two pairs of Stonechats and a few Reed Buntings and Meadow Pipits scattered along the edges.
Four Mistle Thrishes together, four Gadwall and 30+ Stock Doves flew over, whilst along the hedges there were a couple of Cetti's Warblers, a couple of pairs of Stonechats, a fly-by Kingfisher and at least half a dozen Reed Buntings. (AH/IP)
Also, the Whimbrel was in its usual haunt, two Spoonbills were roosting out in the middle of the harbour and a Marsh Harrier briefly appeared from the saltmarsh, with it, or another, later thermalling high over the harbour.
