The Non-avian Fauna

As well as birds, we monitor in a less systematic way other animals occurring at Rye Meads. We keep a butterfly log and include an annual report on these in our Bulletin, and the RSPB also regularly runs a moth trap. In addition we log all sightings of vertebrates on site. There have been expert surveys of our Bats and True-bugs whose findings have been published in our Reports. This page showcases photos of some of the animals seen at Rye Meads. All images are by Members, Friends of the Group, and reserve visitors, and they retain copyright of their images.
