Sussex Coast

We started off on bank Holiday Friday by heading down to Arundel, to do a short walk (from 1001 Walks in Britain published by AA publishing) around the Castle and the WWT reserve (http://www.wwt.org.uk/visit/arundel/default.asp), from there to a B&B in Selsey.

On Saturday morning a prompt start took us first to Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve (http://www.sussexwt.org.uk/reserves_pagham.htm) followed by a dash to Selsey to see our first Wheatears and then on for a walk around Itchenor (again from the AA book) then a trip to Eastbourne.

Sunday included a walk through Abbot’s Wood then a circuit of Arlington Reservoir, although the weather was so dreadful there were very few birds around, so no snaps. Finally on Monday a visit to the Seven Sisters Country park (http://www.sevensisters.org.uk/), the walk again duly provided by the AA.

We walked 24 miles in total over the weekend and got our UK bird list up to 127.
