Rye Harbour

Highlights today included 11 raven over the Beach Reserve mid-morning (the most I have seen at one time ever!), nine avocet and three greenshank on Ternery Pool, red-breasted merganser on Long Pit and bar-tailed godwit and wheatear on Flat Beach, while at Castle Water two or three little stint were seen along with three ruff, the adult little gull, two pintail and at least one marsh harrier. There were also at least two common seal in River Rother round about noon, with one seen heading upriver and another hauled out on the Rye Harbour side of the river just below the northernmost blockhouse.

Returning to Lime Kiln after completing the wetland bird survey counts I came across this little critter, a lesser thorn-tipped longhorn, a natty bird-dropping mimic beetle whose larvae live in the dead twigs of various deciduous trees, only the third record for the reserve.
