On Sunday 2nd February, Sussex Wildlife Trust led two guided, circular walks around the wetlands of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve - internationally designated as Ramsar wetlands. Twenty two people came on the morning walk, which started from Rye station. We were pleased that eight people arrived by train. We walked first to Camber Castle and then had lunch at the nearby hide, overlooking the freshwater of Castle Water. There were excellent views of Marsh Harrier and a variety of ducks, including Gadwall. Fourteen people came on the afternoon wal, which started from the car park at Rye Harbour and explored the saline wetlands.
