Field Trip To Pagham Harbour, West Sussex
Forthcoming Field Trip to Pagham Harbour RSPB reserve in West Sussex on 21st May 2017 
The start time for this Field Trip is 1000hrs at the RSPB visitor centre. The centre has toilets and provides some refreshments. Also there are a couple of hides on the reserve. For those with satnavs the postcode is PO207NE.  For those without, leave the A27 in Chichester on to the B2145.  Follow the B2145 for about 6 miles through the villages of Hunston and Sidlesham. About ½ a mile on left after Sidlesham turn into the Reserve car park.  This reserve turns up a rich diversity of birds and in late May we should encounter a mixture of passage and breeding birds.  it should be a good day.  Hope to see you there.
