Oare Marshes

15:30-16:50 – cloudy with a light SW wind. Two Sandwich Terns flew west up the Swale and two Common Terns were on the east flood. It was high tide and, in addition to the Black-tailed Godwits which included the pale individual first seen on March 17th, there were 30 Dunlin, 75 Redshanks and an Oystercatcher. A Yellow Wagtail flew west over the road, a Reed Warbler was singing just south of the car park and two Swallows were reported passing through.

A small group of seven Knot were reported (Nick Smith)amongst the roosting Black-tailed Godwits yesterday; and within Oare radar and just off the head of the creek in scrub, a Nightingale was in good voice early morning today (Graeme Backhurst)
