Selsey Bill

 I headed down to Selsey Bill before work this morning hoping to see a Manx Shearwater after good movement yesterday, but also to introduce myself to some of regulars there. I was the first to arrive and the sea was quiet, just some Gannets feeding offshore and 2 Swallows appearing to come in off the sea very low. A Whimbrel went by calling going east and 2 Little Terns went west. I moved over to the east end of the beach and 3 Turnstones and an Oystercatcher arrived on the beach and a further 4 Little Terns went west. I walked back towards the car and now some of the regulars had arrived and it was nice to meet Sarah, Martin, Ian and Andrew. Still nothing much happening, but Ian pointed out a dark morph Arctic Skua hassling the feeding Gannets very distantly. 3 Common Scoter past the mile basket and a possible Grey Plover were the only other notable sightings.
