Two ‘earliest’ records from Rye Harbour

There was a record of the BAP dotted bee-fly (Bombylius discolor) at Lime Kiln Cottage on the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve on 27 March and of a humming-bird hawk-moth (Macroglossum stellatarum) at the same place the following day.

Both of these are the earliest sightings for these species in that area.
