This is a blog recording various happenings on Pagham Beach in West Sussex on the south coast of the U.K. Although only set up in January 2014 previous mentions of the beach can be found on my paghambirder blog
which is devoted to my lifelong hobby of birding but focused on sightings in and around Pagham Harbour.

The Annual Lifeboat display.
This event takes place every year and centres around a 'rescue' near the Pagham Yacht Club.
The Coastguard Helicopter arrives on scene.
The 'casualty' in the water with flare.
The winchman safely delivers the 'casualty' onto the lifeboat.
...and is then returned to the helicopter.
...all watched by a team from the coastguards who had walked the entire length of the spit.
