Wet and windy

It wasn't the most pleasant day for being in the field but a check of Goring Gap produced the delightful sight of a wheeling flock of Sanderling and Dunlin. Thankfully the roost field has been left in peace by walkers recently.

And the Sussex Winter Bird Survey route through Lyminster was quiet all-round but delivered a mixed flock of Cattle Egrets and Little Egrets. These birds roost at Arundel and sometimes feed at Broomhurst Farm when the conditions are right.
