Winchelsea Beach/Rye Habour NR

10th September 2006, Sunday

A thorough search of the scrub at the western end of Rye Harbour NR and around Winchelsea Beach was rewarded with a single Firecrest performing well in a small clump of bushes. Other migrants were in good numbers with the majority being seen in the line of scrub behind The Ridge, Winchelsea Beach, including 1 Turtle Dove, 9 Lesser Whitethroat, 18 Whitethroat, 15 Blackcap, 14 Chiffchaff and 11 Reed Warbler. Yellow Wagtail still abound on the beach reserve with 50 counted on a short stretch.
