The shingle pushers are back!


Working early at low tide...before the sun was up.

...but it wasn't long before the sun emerged from behind a cloud on the horizon


Less than twelve hours later it was setting over the harbour...
Looking towards Sidlesham.

Sunrise on a cold, frosty morning.

Looking through the new entrance or the breach.

7.39

7.44
Beautiful but very cold!! Brrrrr!

A little later and a splendid Kingfisher on the revetment.....



In late afternoon a fox by the Little Lagoon...

Just look at those eyes1


...and finally, late sunshine on a Black Headed Gull just in front of the bungalows



An end to a perfect day!

A new tourist attraction maybe?

Following a recent rockfall at Groyne No 3 the 'Falls of Pagham' have emerged.....


                               








 I will try and get better photographs when tide and sunlight permits....an interesting development!

The first of the Autumn Storms.

Storm Angus hit Pagham Beach overnight...a very rough and very noisy night!

This is the sight which greeted us at first light....
Not a major problem but it indicated how strong the overnight winds had been.


Looking along the beach front it was clear to see that further erosion had occurred and the sand bags were not doing a lot of good! 


Walking towards the original harbour entrance  it was clear to see that the wave action had removed a couple of metres right the  way along from in front of the trackway.

This was taken last week

This was taken this morning!


This one was taken in May this year.....
We wait and in trepidation for Storm Barbara to hit us!

As a matter of interest the next two photos show how the harbour exit at groyne three has narrowed since last year....the main flow now being made through the breech.
The channel at low tide early one morning last week.


 Also last week, a day after the super moon...it was shrouded in cloud on the night!

Coastal surveyors

At low tide two quad bikes with GPS equipment arrived in the 'old' car park early this morning and set off at speed to the beach.


Is this interesting?
Who knows!

Sunset before the storm

Last night as the sun set in the wild eastern sky....

...a strange rainbow appeared over the sea.
...very dramatic.


Its a pity I have not captured the thunder and lightening during the night.
