Rye Harbour

Highlight today were three spoonbill, with two on Ternery Pool and one on the new saltmarsh briefly. Apart from that, plenty of wildfowl, though the presence of quartering marsh harrier at both Castle Water (female) and Harbour Farm (male) precluded accurate counts due to the constant panic! Wigeon numbered around 500, an incomplete count of gadwall at least 200 (a good count for the reserve) and there were perhaps 100 pochard on Long Pit, while small numbers of pintail were present on Flat Beach and Harbour Farm and at least two great white egret were at Castle Water. Also at Castle Water, at least eight black-tailed godwit, three ruff (though Barry had nine here recently) and 10 or 20 twenty fieldfare. Golden plover numbers were quite low today, though up to 2500 have been present over the last few days.
