Rye Harbour Sightings

Highlights over the last few days have included the two black-necked grebe on Long Pit, up to two kingfisher and the odd Mediterranean gull on Harbour Farm, marsh harrier and bearded tit at Castle Water  and a good range of waders on Flat Beach Level, including golden plover, knot, grey plover, dunlin and sanderling and increasing numbers of avocet, with up to 20 recorded on the Beach Reserve and Harbour Farm. This smorgasbord inevitably attracted the attention of peregrine, with regular sightings in the last week.

Despite the cold mornings, there's aready a bit of warmth in the daytime sun, tempting out a few early spring invertebrates, including caterpillars of both cream-spot tiger and ruby tiger, a young zebra jumping spider (below) and a queen buff-tailed bumblebee.
