Hit the beach at 0830, and decided to walk up to the golf course seawatching on the way, the wind was a light  north east  so wasn't expecting that much. Gannets 19e 33w, 40e Bar-tailed Godwits, 11e Common Scoter, 2 Mediterranean Gull, 43e Commic Tern, 19w 12e Sandwich Tern, 30n Swallow, and 5 Swift.

20 Whitethroats in the area with 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Yellow Wagtail,2 Wheatear, 2 Willow Warbler,5 Chiffchaff and several Blackcap. At about 1205 I received a call from Christian Melgar informing me that he was watching 5 WHITE STORK heading south over the Littlehampton area. I decided to try my luck in Bailifscourt Gardens and sure enough within the next 5-10 minutes they drifted west north of the hotel .
