Rye Harbour, nice place. Hadn't visited the actually beach part of the reserve before, so a bit new. Kicked a few terns around trying to find a Roseate Tern for my year list and get a few snaps of it hoofing off as I waded through the breeding colony*. Couldn't find it. Had a Turtle Dove hurtle passed which is nice. On the way back to Rye, fuck me Ostriches!
Spent the rest of the afternoon furiously thrashing through the reeds at Dungeness* so I could get some far off shots of a Purple Heron. It finally gave itself up and found somewhere safer to hide. I was very wet by this time so I went home. Tick, get very wet and walk...
Job done. Filthy tick 246.
* Of course I didn't, the birds are far more important than any crap photos or silly lists that I might keep
