Rye Harbour

4th May 2012, Friday

First things first, the Kentish Plover is still showing (as I write 10.20am) on the new saltmarsh adjacent to Lime Kiln Cottage. A good variety of waders (including Curlew Sandpiper) can also be seen on flat beach and the new saltmarsh area, see yesterdays post.

Additional highlights today have included 19 Sanderling feeding along the shore. At Castle Water 3 Common Sandpiper, 2 Green Sandpiper, 3 Greenshank, Hobby, 2 Whinchat, 25 Swift, 70 Swallow and smaller numbers of House and Sand Martin.
