I spent the morning at Dad's and was rewarded with a roast lamb dinner! Result if you ask me.
After dinner I popped into Rye Meads. The Common Sandpiper flew about 5 mins before I walked in the hide and the Marsh Harrier flew in 5-10 minutes after I left the reserve SIGH.
Still I did see a Blackcap, Green Sandpiper, Lapwing and heard a Cetti's.
Great Crested Grebe's aren't regular so nice to see
