Rye Harbour

Trying to find all the roosting Curlew in one place is hard these days with so many places to choose from on Harbour Farm and the Beach Reserve, so it was good at day break to find a group of at least 500 being pushed onto Shore Ridges by the advancing tide. 350 Oystercatcher and 24 Grey Plover were aslo present along the ridges. Yesterdays highlights included 180 Teal and 3 Smew (1 drake) at Ternery Pool, a Common Buzzard glided over on the Beach Reserve, at the viewpoint at Castle water a Bittern gave superb views and 2 Raven passed over head.
