Rye Harbour

Highlight in the last few days was undoubtedly a peregrine hunting lapwings over Flat Beach. It gave excellent views from the hide as it pursued its prey (though in the end it didn't manage to come away with a meal). Apart from this, today saw black-necked grebe and a super male goldeneye on Long Pit and great white egret and an immature male marsh harrier at Castle Water, while a kingfisher was seen whirring along nook drain to the south of the caravan park mid-afternoon. After last months big flocks golden plover numbers have been much lower recently (perhaps due to regular disturbance from marauding raptors), though at least 1500 were present on Flat Beach late yesterday afternoon.
