Oare Marshes

My partner and I spent 4 hours at Oare Marshes on Saturday 25th March, from 7.45 – 12.00. We read the year list and realised that if it is up to date, we can add a couple of species – a single Corn Bunting, near Uplees Copse and two Jackdaws flew over, heading west. We had a Chiffchaff singing in the bushes opposite the cottages and a pair of Marsh Harriers were quartering the reeds around the main part of the reserve when we arrived.
We had four singing Cetti’s – two along the ditches to Uplees Copse, one by the car park (showing well in brambles) and one near the sluice gate in the corner of the East Flood.
