3rd & 4th January - West Sussex

3rd December - went and saw the pair of Whooper Swans at Ivy Lake, Chichester.

4th December
Petworth Park - a superb drake Goosander and many Egyptian Geese.

East Head - Dartford Warbler in the marrams. Good to see lots of Brent Geese on the fields.

Sidlesham Sewage Works - by far the highlight of the day was finding a Willow Warbler here. A smart chappy as well, and it also called a couple of times. Word of warning here is do not park in the compound like I did, because when I went to leave, the gate was locked, and after a wait of 40 minutes I was very fortunate to see a worker arrive......phew. Whilst waiting for my rescue, the 2 Ruddy Shelduck were picked out on the Ferry Pool.

Selsey Bill - a seawatch with Ads and Sam Hill produced 2 Velvet Scoter past and an Eider offshore.

Church Norton - 3 Long-tailed Ducks offshore and lots of Eider. No Waders as very high tide.

Plenty of other bits seen today despite the horrid conditions. Even more horrid however are the phone-scoped pictures below.
