Cycling around Rye Harbour NR

Yesterday, George and I spent the day at one of our favourite South East reserves. We took our bikes so we could cover the surrounding countryside ride around Camber Castle and then later spend the afternoon at the beach hides. We rode to the accompanying sound of Med Gulls, Turtle Dove, Skylark, Cettis Warblers and piping Oystercatchers. We saw all our favourite summer favourite birds, from Sandwich Tern to Hobby. Oh and we musn't forget the rare Downy Emerld dragonfly briefly glimpsed by one of the shaded ponds.We cycled under a vibrant cyan sky, temperatures kept down though by a brisk onshore breeze. We had a brilliant day, can't wait to go again before the Terns leave in the summer.
