Oare Marshes

06:40-11:15 – cloudy with a light to moderate NE wind. There were two Spotted Redshanks on the east flood. Two broods of Gadwall, with seven ducklings each, were also on the east flood, seven Teal were present and a Kingfisher, flying across the flood, was the first post-breeding record. A Whimbrel flew west up the Swale, three Turtle Doves were in the scrub and a Peregrine was on one of the Nagden pylons. An adult Cuckoo flew across the saltmarsh at Uplees and a Corn Bunting sang from a patch of brambles there.
