Rye Meads

Well I did sirs shopping and then headed to Rye Meads for a few hours......

A few juve Willow Warblers near the visitors centre but the draper hide was very quiet so expecting few birds I decided to give a tour of the reserve. The weather was weird, one most glorious sun then cloudy....


If you look closely you may find a juvenile Black Necked Grebe..... LOL its still about and looking all grown up these days.


Curiously the number of Common Terns had dropped dramatically in a week, just a few now. There were a few Swallows and Martins overhead















This is a member of a family of Coots in the same spot....




I headed back and popped back into the Draper Hide and a Black Tailed Godwit had popped in! as well a couple of Lapwings....
