Pagham Harbour walk; Section 2:The southern Harbour.
From the beach we set off against the rising tide, still hoping for dry feet.
I had hoped to have lunch in the bird-hide at Church Norton, but all access paths were in deep water.
We had our picnic in the graveyard, where Richard found a pair of dry socks in his rucksack, and in a quite extraordinary act of chivalry and gallantry, offered them to Liz; thus saving her from potentially debilitating foot-rot by the end of the day.
They are juvenile Goldfinches, which have yet to develop their red heads. This flock of 100 or more birds was impressive.
We were now approaching Ferry pool, where I shall start Section 3. of this walk.
Here is a trailer.... an Avocet.
