Hard work day (01/04/2012)

Started off at Selsey Bill but it was extremely quiet with only a few Sandwich Terns and Gannets and two drake/one female Common Scoter passed.  Then onto Church Norton but nothing there.  Onto the Ferry Pool where there was no sign of the Spoonbill - just 2 Avocets.  Onto Chichester GP's where the Little Gull had gone although had good views of a Cetti's Warbler.

Then onto Farlington Marshes where no sign of the Spoonbill or Green-winged Teal - just a couple of Bearded Tits along the stream.  Next onto the woods near Four Marks but no Willow Tits, however, did see my 3rd Firecrest of the year.

Finally onto Basingstoke where I missed the Hoopoe by 10 minutes

A day best forgotten for the birds that I wanted to see!

Here is some pictures from an uneventful walk on 1st April:
