Shoreham area 17 August 2016

Wednesday 17 August. Mill Hill before breakfast produced Whinchat, Wheatear, 3 Reed Warblers, 11 Whitethroats and 9 Willow Warblers. Later 4 Sandwich Terns east at Widewater while paddling with Megan. We then tried 5 km synchronised bicycle pushing in case it became an Olympic event - I'd chained our bikes together on the beach and forgotten the key! After tea on the Adur at low tide 29 Ringed Plover and 4 Dunlin but very few gulls.

Sunday 14 August. Megan and I walked around Cissbury seeing a Tree Pipit fly over, Spotted Flycatcher and Peregrine but only single Whitethroat and Willow Warbler.
