A Common Dolphin was spotted in the mouth of Shoreham Harbour.
Report by Phil Dunk on the Sussex Ornithological Society News

 
23 December 2012
In a year where the Garden Orb Spiders, Araneus diadematus, had been infrequent, perhaps because of the persistent rain, I was surprised to see one much later in the year than their peak autumn period, over the beds of shrubs outside the Co-op supermarket in Ham Road, Shoreham.
