The Climping Gap remains one of the last undeveloped sites along the coast in West Sussex.
This site is dedicated to Birds seen in and around the Climping Gap area by myself and a few die hard friends, that live in the area and have been birding the local patch for decades.
(Please email your sighting's to firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet to @BirdsofClimping).

Quick visit to the patch this morning produced c.70 Swift moving west over Atherington Cottages, offshore low numbers of both Gannet and Sandwich Tern, 5 Little Egret on the tideline and a Common Sandpiper.
Took a quick visit to Marsh Farm Thursday morning, still plenty of Reed Warbler, singing along with several Blackcap, 2 Tufted Duck and a Little Grebe on the pools, 3 Buzzard in the area and 25 Sand Martin moving through west.
Just wanted to remind everyone that the Appeal
for the 134 pitch caravan park in the Climping Gap will be held
Tuesday, June 4th at 10am sharp in the Millennium Chamber in Manor
House on Church Street Littlehampton. A good show of locals would help the
case against the appeal. It would be best not to speak at the hearing
unless you have already requested to do so or are asked a question by the
Inspector. A strong but calm group of supporters is what is needed.
There will also be a site visit at some time during the proceedings which,
hopefully, the public can attend but that will be at the discretion of the land
owners. Hope to see you there.
