Avocet are here in good numbers.

Large waders are a key species at this habitat, Little egret and Redshank.

Smaller waders are :common ringed plover, dunlin ,little stint, hundreds of oyster catchers and turnstone doing what they do best.

There are also plenty of duck, many looking for nesting sites. The competition for nesting sites is noisy and squabbling is common place. Below are Shelduck,shoveler,little grebe, wigeon, brent geese and gadwall.

Views and walks at Rye are spectacular especially when the tide is out: views over to Camber sands and Pett levels .(Also on a blog)Look through the wall to see Dungeness in the distance. ,Beach combing can be rewarding too with razor fish shells in abundance.

Unusual groups of turnstone a solitary sanderling, carrion crow and sadly a dead seal amongst the flotsam and jetsam

Big numbers of cormorant ,gulls and oyster catchers.

Oyster catchers.

Black headed gulls were getting it on ,skylarks were also singing high in the sky while meadow pipits flew from fence post to fence post .A great day.
