Rye Harbour

Harbour Farm provided a few highlights this morning with 17 Bar-tailed Godwit, Green Sandpiper, 2 Avocet and 58 Brent Geese. At Ternery Pool around 40 Mediterranean Gulls were busy squabbling amongst themselves for nest sites despite the huge amount of space available, a few chilled out Sandwich Terns looked on. At Castle Water a Bittern and Barn Owl gave flight views from the viewpoint at day break. From the hide groups of Shoveler, Teal and Gadwall were joined by a pair of displaying Great Crested Grebes.
