I managed to spend three hours down on Hayling today where the shingle bar at The Kench had good numbers of the expected waders feeding as the tide dropped. There must be at least a thousand Brent Geese in the harbour now too. The only other bird of note here was a nice male Common Scoter hanging around the area until the tide dropped and it took flight and landed again on the water further out in the harbour.
I spent the last part of the afternoon with ACJ having a brief seawatch from
. The highlight was this juvenile Arctic Skua which put on an excellent but brief show harassing
a gull just offshore and over the beach. Sandy Point
