Guide in a Hide 29 December 2023

Guide in a Hide (GIAH) is part of the Discover Rye Harbour project, funded by the National Lottery Fund through Sussex Wildlife trust (SWT).

My goodness, our guides in the hide were busy today! 132 people came along in just three hours; many locals and many visitors from London and Kent.

It was wonderful to show people large numbers of our winter ducks like Pintail, Wigeon and Teal, and it was amazing that 70-80 Brent Geese could almost hide themselves in the saltmarsh. Other highlights were Spoonbill, Red-breasted Merganser and a Peregrine flying through. Fast!

We met some lovely people today. Thank you so much for coming along – your interest in the wildlife and smiles when you see it really make it all worthwhile!

See you next year!
