Pagham Beach estate...a new approach!

What a great idea 

For the past few days a kind soul has been working hard to improve  the appearance of the 'island' leading to Harbour Road and Lagoon Road.

Work in progress.
What a great idea! Thank you.

This morning at 6.30 I noticed  person  walking the low tide mark in the harbour channel with a GPS on his back.
 Forty five minutes later, at 7.15  a site meeting appeared to be taking place at the 'old' harbour entrance....interesting!

Panoramic shot....Bognor on the left...Selsey on the right of photo.

Another panoramic showing West Front Road bungalows on left , the newly formed lagoon and the the main outfall channel from the harbour.( Need to view large on large screen to see properly)

During the past few weeks erosion has continued unabated and exposed a huge amount of metal work...presumably WW2 relics.

 I am pleased to note that the RSPB has put up notices regarding the danger of the toxic caterpillars of the Brown Tailed Moth which have now stripped all the blackberry foliage and are foraging for food in gardens and  crawling up walls and even coming indoors.

Close up ...showing the thousands of prickly hairs!

Blackberry bush near the Lagoon.....stripped of foliage.
Typical of hundreds of similar bushes on the Spit.
