Rye Harbour

As the day length gradually increases so does the gull activity at Ternery Pool, this morning at least 350 Black-headed and 12 Mediterranean Gulls brought the place alive with birds squabbling and calling. Offshore small groups of Brent Geese are still frequent heading east, 14 Eider and 8 Velvet Scoter provided additional interest. At Castle water over the last few days four Marsh Harrier have given fantastic views from the viewpoint, Bearded Tits, Barn Owl and two Bittern have also given flight views.
