Rye Harbour

6th May 2012, Sunday

Perhaps not as many birds on the new saltmarsh today but the quality has not decreased. The kentish plover was still present, as was the Temminck’s stint, one or two little stint , at least one curlew sandpiper and a little ringed plover. Elsewhere on the reserve a peregrine was seen early on, at least 10 little tern and six wheatear were on Flat Beach mid-morning, and a turtle dove was sitting on the telephone wires just south of the Narrow Pits around noon.
