Thorney, Fishbourne & Pagham Harbour 1/9/11

Started the day on Thorney Island in hopes of seeing the Cattle Egret. There was no sign initially but after 45 minutes it showed on a fence post at 100m range, hence the poor photo. It was great to see and i think is my 13th for Sussex. Nothing else of note.

Next was Fishbourne Creek where the highlights were stacks of Mediterranean Gulls, Greenshank and a Spotted Flycatcher.

Pagham Harbour was the last stop and produced 3 adult Yellow-legged Gulls, 2 Curlew Sandpipers, 2 Spotted Redshanks, 12 Knot, lots of Med. Gulls and Black-tailed Godwits.

Sussex Year List now on 217, UK year list on 251.
