Rye Harbour Sightings

7th May 2008, Wednesday

A dawn check on the Whimbrel roost on the Quarry this morning found 85 birds present. Also here were four Grey Plover and three Bar-tailed Godwit, these birds moving over to Flat Beach Level as the sun rose. On Harbour Farm, at least 25 Avocet were present on the new pools (with at least 20 on the pool adjacent to Harbour Farm Barn), as well as four Little Ringed Plover and a Common Sandpiper.
