Rye Harbour

31st March 2011, Thursday

Avian highlights today have included a flushed Jack Snipe at Wader Pool, 3 Whimbrel on Harbour Farm, 2 Merlin along Shore Ridges, and a Firecrest in the smallest piece of bramble scrub it could find near the Old Life Boat House. Wheatears are still thin on the ground with a singleton at the River Mouth. Despite the wet and windy weather a Blackcap and Sedge Warbler were both in song at Castle Water.
