There was a short delay for traffic as a small fishing boat, laden with sacks of shellfish was winched up the beach and across the promenade.
Near Selsey lifeboat station was this flock of Turnstones, co-existing quite happily with the walkers along the promenade.
It was on this stretch from Selsey across flat farmland that we spotted a Marsh Harrier flying low over the fields, then three buzzards soaring high in the sky and shortly after a Kestrel, which was being relentlessly harassed by a crow. To see three different raptors on this afternoon was wonderful. This was a great walk thanks to the convivial and knowledgeable company and the eagle-eyed Sue who spotted the Marsh Harrier on a distant post.
