Photographer's Note

Yesterday was a beautiful but very cold day. Nine of us did a bracing circular walk from Chidham which is a very small village south-west of Chichester. The photo shows a couple walking their dog at low tide.

Chichester Harbour is a large natural harbour on the Solent and one of the few remaining undeveloped coastal areas in Southern England. There are many creeks and is a popular spot for viewing the many wading and other birds that come to the tidal mudflats. According to Wikipedia, more than 7,500 Brent geese overwinter on the intertidal mud-land and adjacent farmland and more than 50,000 birds reside in or visit the Harbour throughout the year.

The large harbour and nature conservancy is also a popular area for sailing. For those of you who know the area the photo is taken looking north with Thorney island out of the picture on the left.
