Rye Harbour

Highlights during todays breeding bird survey at Castle Water were spoonbill, great white egret and male red-breasted merganser (it seems to have taken a liking to a pair of great crested grebes in lieu of its own kind). I actually missed the spoonbill which Mike Russell, who was in the hide at the time, took great delight in telling me was behind me at one point! The survey itself turned up no surprises, though it was nice to hear three lesser whitethroat, one in the scrub by the hide and a couple just to the south, and bearded tit pinging away near the viewpoint. Elsewhere on the reserve whimbrel and little ringed plover were in the field to the south-east of the barns, while grey partridge were seen in the field to the west.
