Stopping at the Ferry pool hide, there were views of teal.
A long way away, were a group of avocets that a kindly birder with a very powerful telescope showed us. With binoculars they were white spots. A photo with my camera was impossible.
In the centre of the picture above were a couple of herons and a little egret.
Here is an egret in flight.
Far away were a some shellducks.
We also saw (but could not get a picture of) a Little grebe.
Near the Church Norton hide were a couple of Great crested grebes
A small flock of Teal were feeding in the intertidal mud flats.
Further away still were some Oystercatchers and Cormorants
We walked around the coast to Selsey Lifeboat station under a darkening sky.
A couple of Oystercatchers paced the shoreline.
From the promenade at Selsey the turnstones are common and used to people.
This is a great linear walk using the local bus to get back to the starting point -- on this day, just before the rains came.
