Rye Harbour

Highlights over the last few days have included the long-staying red-breasted merganser on Harbour Farm, great white egret and  regular marsh harrier at Castle Water and at least two different peregrine over the Beach Reserve (immature) and at Castle Water (adult). Still lots of golden plover and lapwing to see, with maxima of 1500 and around 600 respectively, while other waders included up to 150 knot, 80 dunlin and small numbers of grey plover, bar-tailed godwit and black-tailed godwit. Numbers of shoveler and gadwall have jumped up with the incoming cold front, with over 150 of the former around the reserve and 150 of the latter at Castle Water alone. There have also been some large (for here) counts of Egyptian goose, with 25 on Castle Farm on the 1st, up to three goldeneye on Harbour Farm and numerous pintail on Flat Beach.
