Rye Bay Nature Reserve

A Unique shingle nature reserve

here for the Rye Bay Nature Reserve Web Site.

Rye Bay Nature Reserve is located at the end of the Rye Harbour road, and consists of saltmarsh, and shingle enviroments with a unique population of birds for the UK. The area is made of shingle ridges with old gravel extraction pits providing lakes. To the harbour side of the reserve is a recently developed tidal salt marsh which provides a biodiverse habitat.

Some highlights are Ternery Pool where you can see Grebe's, Sandwich Terns and black headed gulls to name a few and aslo some unusual plants for this area such as the sea clubrush.

The Saltmarsh and Wader Pool where you can get a glimpse of the Redshank and Reed Bunting in the summer, here you will also find Sea Purslane and Sea Wormwood.

Camber Castle is also located in the Reserve and can be walked around and visited from time to time by tours organised by the Friends of Rye Harbour.

Across the river estuary lies the holiday resort of Camber Sands where you can see sand and kite yachting at low tide, and windsurfing and kite surfing at higher tides.

The Reserve is open throughout the year and parking can be found in Rye Harbour or at nearby Winchelsea Beach.

Further details are available from the Wild Rye website.
