Wood Warbler at Buchan Park, the nearer bird to the car park, nothing on the pager
Digital Voice Recording - better quality than the video but the only disadvantage of Buchan Park is the road (and plane) noise

Buoyed by our success we decided to push our luck and try for the Glossy Ibis at Pagham and Rose-coloured Starling at Selsey but a reasonable search for both failed to produce a sighting, although we may only have spent 50 minutes at Selsey despite it seeming more like 3 days. There were few migrants at Pagham but a Nightjar that had been found halfway down the west side was a rare daylight occurrence for me. Also at Pagham we saw an Avocet, a Black-tailed Godwit, 12 Bar-tailed Godwits, 12 Whimbrel, 3 Little Terns, a vocal Cuckoo and a Cetti's Warbler.
