Rye Harbour Sightings

A good range of passerines today included a Woodlark over Lime Kiln Cottage mid-afternoon, several small groups of Siskin, 11 Redpoll, 47 Goldfinch, 50+ Linnet, two or three Wheatear and several pairs of Stonechat. All this activity attracted the attention of a Merlin which was present around Ternery Pool throughout the day, while other raptors included a Hobby and a female Marsh Harrier at Castle Water mid-afternoon.
