Flyers and Pagham Harbour

female Mandarin Duck, Aix galericulata
On Friday 20th I arrived at Arundel WWT hoping the cloud would clear for the eclipse. Some hope! The sun appeared two hours late at 11:30am. I spent some time at the woodland feeders trying for some flight shots. On Saturday I visited Church Norton, Pagham Harbour and walked round the spit.
