Pebsham Countryside Park – Galley Hill

Very tame and inquisitive Razorbill swam up to within 4 metres of my surf board 200 metres off Galley Hill Common today (07/01/12).

Rye harbour

Wader numbers feeding along the shore and then roosting at high water along shore ridges have been a bit naff so far this winter, so it was good to find 70 Knot, 100 Dunlin, 25 Sanderling and 16 Grey Plover over the last few days. Highlights from Castle water this morning were provided by 2 Bittern and a Barn Owl all inflight from the viewpoint area.
