Rye Harbour

Highlights yesterday on the monthly Wetland Bird Survey at Rye Harbour were the long-staying red-breasted merganser (this time on the pool south of Harbour Farm Barns), three goldeneye on Long Pit, four ruff at the western end of Harbour Farm and a fine display of birds on Flat Beach, including at least 550 golden plover, 68 grey plover, 67 dunlin and 61 sanderling, as well as smaller numbers of pintail, ringed plover and turnstone.

At dusk a visit to the viewpoint at Castle Water turned up at least three marsh harrier (adult male and female and immature male) which came in to roost in the reedbed and calling water rail, while Cliff Dean (who was just leaving as I turned up!) reported at least four great white egret, barn owl and fieldfare.
