Pagham (05/08/2014)

Quite a long wait but eventually it was worth it as the Long-tailed Skua, after making a few attempts at chasing terns, flew in to the harbour giving reasonable views.  It then moved a fair way inland before turning back around and moving back onto the sea where it landed and couldn't be relocated.

On one of my trips back to the car a Peregrine flew over being harassed by a couple of Kestrels.

Pennington Marshes (04/08/2014)

A pleasant early morning walk around the marshes produced a Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Wood Sandpipers and at least 3 juvenile Water Rails.  6 Eider were in the harbour and eventually had good views of the Pectoral Sandpiper on the Fish-tail Lagoon.
