Next stop was onto the RSPB reserve first for the 5 Bean Geese that were distant but easy to find as the crowd were eager to point out.
I decided to start heading for home. But stopped off again at Scotney to have another look for the Scaup and to my amazement a Drake had joined the female. - So not seeing one last year I now see 2 in one day. Albeit very distant.
As high tide was approaching I stopped off at Rye Harbour reserve and managed to find my first Avocets of the year (5) the Little Stint and eventually the over wintering Spotted Redshank.
Another good day.
