Dell Quay, Pagham Harbour, Shoreham and Titch Hill

Dell Quay offered a Spotted Redshank, a Greenshank, two Red-breasted Mergansers, a Rock Pipit and a pleasing suite of wintering waders and wildfowl.

A look from Church Norton produced a Sandwich Tern, along with a good scattering of Knot and Bar-tailed Godwits among other waders.

Shoreham Harbour had one Purple Sandpiper and five Turnstones on the wooden jetty. On the RSPB reserve on the Adur was a Wigeon, along with eight Teal, 14 Redshanks and a flock of 20 Linnets.

Late afternoon, a period scanning from Titch Hill offered 17 Fieldfares, a female Sparrowhawk and
a Kestrel, but little else.
