Oare and beyond

1230—1530    Oare`s radar would easily have dealt with the low flying chinook which scattered birds either side of the creek, besides making the Horse Sands` seals very twitchy. So happens todays obs were looking towards Oare, with up to 20 Yellow Wagtails of differing genders, plus juvs, for company; a singing Corn Bunting, and a  Painted Lady for good measure. 39 seals with a few very small pups were hauled up; Great Black-backed Gulls were becoming more obvious and Curlews were again probing the shoreline. Skylarks appear to have had a good breeding season and Reed Warblers remain vocal.
