Goring Gap and West Tarring Allotments

An early morning visit to Goring Gap produced a 2cy Little Gull which struggled west into the wind over the beach before pitching down, but it then mysteriously vanished. Other observations included two Willow Warblers, at least four Mediterranean Gulls and 12 Sandwich Terns, 21 Sanderlings, 11 Turnstones, two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, two Gannets, three Oystercatchers, three Blackcaps and two Chiffchaffs. Close encounters were had with Stock Dove and Jay in the Plantation.
