Walking along several of the footpaths of the beach reserve and Rye Harbour farm is likely to bring you within mobbing range of many birds. Their alarm calls and constant flying around means you are disturbing their chicks. They need all the help they can, so please don’t stay too long. Most likely species are Avocet, Lapwing, Redshank and Ringed Plover, but any alarming bird should tell you to move away.
