Following my two female Firecrests in Rye Cemetery onÂ Nov 2nd, this afternoon Mary & I were surprised to findÂ a male (with a Goldcrest there also)Â feeding and preening in holly and rhododendron bushes at the top of the lane leading up to The Mount from the Rye boundary along Military Road. How many more are lurking unseen inÂ the many large gardens on Rye Hill?

The two Long-tailed Duck were still present on Long Pit mid-morning, along with a Scaup, male Red-crested Pochard and two Goldeneye. In addition, a small flock of Fieldfare was present along Narrow Pit.
