|Black-winged Stilt at the rear of Sidlesham Ferry pool|
|a very pale legged individual|
|at least it was large enough to get reasonable digiscoped images|
|on a rare foray to the near side of the ferry pool, where the mud was much thicker!|
|Red-necked Phalarope on Sidlesham Ferry|
|found by John King while I was looking the other way|
|I thought it was a female|
|although head-on images are not so convincing|
|a splendid bird whatever|
|phalaropes have always been a favourite of mine and a good plumaged Red-necked is the best of them all|
|Little Tern at Medmerry|
|one of nine juvenile Long-tailed tits at Ivy Lake|
|note the wattle-eye|
|they must have very recently left the nest|
Thursday 28th. An hour at Pulborough early evening produced a Little Ringed Plover, 30 Swifts, my first Sussex Sand Martin this year(!) and an excellent view of a Nightingale (thanks Gordon). At Lavington just one Woodcock, two Nightjars, a Cuckoo and 4 Yellowhammers.
|Lavington at dusk. Just one Woodcock flypast was a concern although it was surprisingly cold|
