Rye Harbour

Bird highlight over the last few days was undoubtedly turtle dove calling near the viewpoint, the first time I have heard a bird on the reserve for a few years now (when I started in 2001 you could virtually guarantee them in at least three places). Same place, same time there was also a brief burst of nightingale song. Other interesting sightings (and all seen today) have been spoonbill on Harbour Farm (though it has been seen several times on Flat Beach in the morning), male red-breasted merganser at Castle Water and little gull on Harbour Farm on the pits behind Ternery Pool. Also today from the Castle Water hide there was an impressive display of swifts, with at least 100 in the air, along with 200+ house martin
