Rye Harbour Sightings

10th February 2008, Sunday

The monthly WeBS (Wetland Bird Survey) turned up a good range of species this morning. On the shore an abundance of waders included over 60 individuals of both Knot and Grey Plover, as well as 180 Sanderling and over 200 Dunlin, while offshore around 70 Brent Goose flew east mid morning. On Long Pit the highlights were a Long-tailed Duck and four Goldeneye (two drakes). In addition, the Shore Lark is still present near the Red-roofed Hut.
