A great day down in West Sussex today with Bob Self, and being joined by Ian Barnard for most of the day. By far the highlight was the adult Long (Short) -tailed Skua off Church Norton, which first showed itself at around 6.40am. Next was the Cattle Egret at Sidlesham, yet another good yeartick. Both birds showed relatively well. Good to meet lots of familiar faces today, and have lots of laughs.
