Rye Harbour Shore

Ideal tidal and weather conditions to get a decent count of Curlew along the shore this morning, at least 445 birds were feeding between the river mouth and just past the old lifeboat house. More of a surprise was the lack of other wader species present with only a few Redshank and small numbers of Oystercatchers. Also of note this morning 18 Shelduck were amongst the other wildfowl on Flat Beach.


Roosting Snipe

Its been a few years since I have found a large Snipe roost on the reserve, not because they have not been here its just harder to track things down with the amount of habitat now available. This morning at least 110 Snipe and 4 Jack Snipe were roosting/feeding on Harbour Farm.
