In case you missed yesterday's late posting....the Oval Field at Selsey Bill has now been designated a Village Green....for fuller details see yesterday's blog.
Medmerry (east side) - Breach towards Northcommon Farm: An Osprey was fishing at the breach and a Curlew sandpiper was with a flock of 100 mixed Dunlin and Ringed Plover. Also seen were 4 Yellow Wagtails, a Wheatear, 2 Whitethroats, 100+ sand Martins and 20+ Swallows (SH).
Friday, 26th August: Another very nice summer's day, warm under hazy sunshine.....
Also a Greenshank was on White's Creek, a Kingfisher was behind the sluices, and.there were Black-tailed Godwits, Spotted Redshank, Greenshank, Lapwings, Dunlin, Redshank, 60+ Mallard, seven Teal and three Moorhen.
Medmerry: Easton Lane to Stilt Pool - Fairly quiet mid-morning but there were 100 Yellow Wagtails around the cattle, three Common Sandpipers and the two Bar-headed Geese on the Stilt pool with Canada Geese flock and three Wheatears along the beach. On the way back to Easton Lane a Hobby gave good views and there were still a few Clouded Yellows and Common Blues by the banks here. (BI)
Later, several Wheatears were around the south of Medmerry at lunchtime today plus a fly-through (N-to-S) Raven. An Osprey did finally turn up but didn't hang around long, whilst a pair of Mute Swans was perhaps unusual for this part of the site. (GW)
