Rye Harbour Nature Reserve

On Sunday I spent a couple of hours at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve as my mum and I were staying in Rye for a few days.


It was quite hot and there were a lot of people walking around so we spent most of the time in 2 of the hides. In the first an Oystercatcher came really close to the hide enabling me to get some photos.

I also finally managed to see Yellow Wagtail, a lifer for me. A small group of them were flying around, calling and then landing right in front of me. There were also Pied Wagtail.

Starling, including a lot of juvenile were feeding on the ground behind the lake and there was also a Little Egret. Hidden amongst the reeds and islands was a Whimbrel and I also spotted a juvenile Sandwich Tern.

As we walked down to the beach a Dunlin flew past, calling, and 4 Sandwich tern flew past behind me, heading out to sea, a nice end to a short visit to Rye Harbour.

First ringing session this year and my first goldeneye!

Definitely a Waxwing Winter!
