So off to Widewater Lagoon in search of Mergansers - saw 7 in total.
After Widewater, I decided to go to Pulborough Brooks - The A27 was solid with traffic so decided to go another route... that road (from Shoreham) was blocked off at the roundabout, by a police car.... grrrrrrrr
Went another way to Pulborough Brooks....which was flooded and cafe shut - and it was lunch time
So, decided to grab something at Tesco's and go to Petworth Park... The road from Pulborough to Petworth was closed... the road was flooded.
So went to Tesco's... did some shopping, got some petrol and came home! Exciting day...
But the sky was blue and the sun shone at Widewater
Two groups of Little Grebes totaling about 12
A group of 6 (4 female and 2 males) Red-breasted Mergansers on Widewater. A 7th, a male, was away from the others in the other part of the lagoon (record shots only)
The family of swans
But the sunshine & blue sky were lovely :D
