Rye Harbour

The recent spell of cold weather seems to have encourgaged many birds to move on to warmer climes; we are certainly missing the big flocks of golden plover and lapwing that have been evident recently and even duck numbers have dropped off considerably. Best of the bunch over the last few days have included the male red-breasted merganser on Harbour Farm, small groups of Brent goose on the new saltmarsh and a barn owl being mobbed by herring gull over Beach Reserve yesterday afternoon. There have also been several sightings of grey partridge at the western end of Harbour Farm and small numbers of snipe.
