Rye Harbour

Twelve Stevenage members joined the Hitchin and Letchworth local group on their coach trip to Rye Harbour on the East Sussex coast on the 18th September. The weather was fine.

During the day Stevenage members saw 63 species of bird. Highlights included Spoonbill, Merlin, Curlew Sandpiper and Kingfisher. There were plenty of Hirundines and Pipits and all three species of Wagtail. We also saw Stonechat and Wheatear.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable day.
