I took advantage of the wretched conditions in the morning to stay in
and get things done then headed out to the Adur near Coombes in the
afternoon. I was hoping for the Goosander, yet again, but no sign. The
tide was high and a Common Sandpiper and eight Redshanks were roosting on the banks. A Peregrine, a Kestrel, a Sparrowhawk and three Buzzards represented the raptors. A Little Grebe was on the river.
