Rye Harbour Sightings

Still good numbers of wildfowl at Castle Water, with several hundred Wigeon and several tens of Shoveler, Teal and Gadwall, with the highlight a single Scaup showing well form the hide. Also present, a Marsh Harrier was quartering the reedbeds (probably one of this years youngsters, though there are adults around too), around 30 Golden Plover and several hundred Lapwing were feeding on the short grassland, and small numbers of Fieldfare were feeding on trees near Castle Farm.
