Wildlife and Walks

To the south is Pagham Harbour, a designated nature reserve, which has a lagoon to one side. Sanderlings, Oyster catchers, plovers and curlews may all be seen here. The walk along the coast to Selsey is lovely.

High levels of bacteria in the water can indicate pollution from sewage treatment works or polluted rain water draining from the land.
