Rye Harbour

Bird highlight over the last few days has been a cattle egret on Castle Farm, first seen on the 18th by Pat Bonham and spotted on a couple of occasions since, while one or two spoonbill continue to grace Salt Pool. Also on Harbour Farm, golden plover numbers are rising slowly with 80-100 present around Salt Pool, a kingfisher has been seen flying along the ditch to the north of the information centre on several occasions and there have been a few raven sightings, while at Castle Water great white egret and marsh harrier have been the pick of the bunch. In addition there have been small groups of gannet offshore.

The change in the weather has knocked back the insects as might be expected though there have still been a few red admiral around catching what rays they can and ivy bee, queen buff-tailed bumblebee and hornet feeding on ivy flowers.
