|You can say that again !|
...and the moon rose above the sea

Our beach used to look like this right along to the Yacht Club.....................
This is how 'our bit' looks now!
The poor little tree that was completely buried last week has reappeared as the replacement shingle has been washed away yet again!
|...this was taken this morning with the Sea Kale now in bloom, much further along the beach to the west.|
|Alas...a bit of a mess!|
|Hey ho....here we go again!|

It's 9.15a.m. Sunday morning and the Emergency Team has arrived on the beach from Arun D.C.
They soon get to work hammering in the supports to the fence which has suffered from wind damage during the last 24 hours.
|Not much fence remaining to 'play' with.|

|Machinery lies idle under a leaden sky.|
I am told they will spring into action tomorrow!
However some considerable progress has been achieved and some of the beach has been reinstated....THE tree has now gone for ever ...buried alive!
|The remains of THE tree can just be seen in the foreground....looking east.|
|Looking westwards...a metal detector 'hopeful'!|
|Additional shingle bags have been placed against the fourth groyne to prevent the sea getting in behind it.|
|The sea is a wonderful colour this afternoon!|

I notice that a comment on the Save Pagham Beach Facebook recently queried the identification of a poor quality long distance photo of the returning Little Terns in the harbour. I am sure other beach residents may be interested in correct identification of the Little Terns which have created considerable interest in relation to the controversy of the 'new' spit!
|Little Tern....very small with bright yellow bill with black tip|
|Common Tern...larger with red bill with black tip|
|Sandwich Tern....largest Tern with black bill with yellow tip.|
Three other terns are seen from time to time....Arctic Tern, Black Tern and Roseate Tern but only when they passing though on their long migration routes. All three of 'our' terns have now arrived so keep an eye (and ear) out!
