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 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!
