Selsey Bill

A quick dash down from Pagham Harbour and reference to the local birders who were sea watching and bingo! First up a small flock of Turnstones being buffeted by the strong winds:

Then, along the coast a little and we found them, a number of pairs of Wheatears (another first!), resting on the shore. They were surprisingly tolerant of humans:

Male Wheatear:

A pair:

A female Wheatear:

In the end we saw at least 10 Wheatears, a very satisfying experience, as this was a bird I really wanted to see!
