Pagham Harbour

Pagham Harbour (brief stops at Church Norton and Ferry Pool) offered 10 Little Terns among the clamour of Sandwich Terns, Common Terns, Black-headed Gulls and Mediterranean Gulls. A singing Cuckoo landed pretty close to me for a few seconds and other stuff noted included a Wigeon, a Gadwall, 22 Shelducks, four Great Crested Grebes, a Little Egret, a Buzzard, 19 Oystercatchers, 15 Black-tailed Godwits, 10 Turnstones, six Ringed Plovers, five Swifts, single Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, two Skylarks, three Swallows, two Reed Warblers, a Chiffchaff, three Blackcaps, and individual singing Lesser Whitethroat and Whitethroat.
