Above, a Godwit and by comparison, a tiny little Snipe, plus lots of Lapwings.
Passing Siddlesham Quay and approaching Pagham Harbour Wall, a little Egret was fishing with Redshanks and Curlew walking about.
He made my day! Thank you: I would never had spotted these tiny little birds, so well camouflaged against the reeds.
There it is: tiny compared to the Mallard ducks. But what is the little duck? A Ruddy duck perhaps.
Some shots were taken in "burst mode" among which these two showing the Snipe flying off, disturbing the Ruddy Duck.
More Snipe on the shore, another Ruddy duck and a Teal swimming.
What a fine place to see these birds, many of which may have flown a very long way to get here.
Some of these shots will no doubt, be used in my public talks: details at www.peterlovetttalks.co.uk Let your mouse hover over "TALKS" at the top of the page for a drop down list of nature talks.
