Widewater Lagoon and Adur Estuary

A Little Egret and two Mute Swans were at Widewater as I cycled through. The Adur Estuary offered a 2cy Mediterranean Gull, an Oystercatcher (carrying a worm to the Ricardo buildings), two Lesser Black-backed Gulls, four Mute Swans, two Little Egrets, a Grey Heron, a Cetti's Warbler, two Reed Warblers (including a typically out-of-place June migrant), a Meadow Pipit and four Skylarks. Just beyond the A27 bridge I added 11 House Martins, a Sedge Warbler, four Swallows, another Reed Warbler, two Reed Buntings, another Grey Heron and another Little Egret.

Somehow I managed to totally balls up the logistics of the day - which involved an emergency trip to IKEA in Croydon - such that I couldn't make it to Beeding Hill for the local Red-footed Falcon.
