Rye Harbour – 22nd August 2015

Only five of us turned up for this event – Alan N, Alan and Maureen, Bob P and Sue P. It looked promising, with bright sunshine – though unfortunately the temperature rose steadily as the morning went on, meaning that we’d all had enough by lunchtime!

Most of the best sightings were from the first hide, where we could see dunlin, ringed plovers, juvenile pied wagtails and ditto wheatears. Mipits, oystercatchers, avocets, common and Sandwich terns were added to the list; from the middle hides we also saw kestrel, sparrowhawk, grey partridge, swift and sand martin (these the more notable species), whilst on the walk back we were very pleased to have excellent views of yellow wagtails.

Bob took the photographs that accompany this brief report.
