Guide in a Hide 19 Feb 2023

Guide in a Hide is part of the Discover Rye Harbour project, supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund through Sussex Wildlife Trust (SWT) 

Discover Rye Harbour offers a range of community engagement activities, encouraging visitors to learn a little more about the special wildlife at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve

The Guide in a Hide activity involves a team of volunteers, made up mainly of Friends members, sharing telescopes and binoculars with visitors, to give really close up views of the birds on the reserve, and explain a little about their behaviour and migration routes.

Brent Geese

The event has grown in popularity since it began in August 2021, and we have now engaged with over 3400 visitors!

On 19th February, in beautiful weather, we showed 233 visitors a good variety of waders and ducks but perhaps the best sounds and views came from beautiful Brent Geese and singing Skylark, which accompanied us all day. 

It’s an absolute joy to be a part of the team of volunteers and from the feedback we received, our visitors enjoy it as much as we do!
