This morning I went to Oare marsh with Bob Bland and Derrick Jackson.Oare marsh is on the south side of the Swale,opposite to where I was on Saturday/Sunday night.Although it was a beautiful clear bright morning,the only down side was a bitterly cold westerly wind,but this was more than compensated for by the finding of some good birds.Birds of note seen G W Egret (1) Ruff (15+) Avocet (100+) Pintail (6) Hen Harrier (1 ring-tail) Common Buzzard (2) Rough legged Buzzard (1) the Buzzards were seen flying together over Harty Hill,Merlin (1) Marsh Harrier (2) Twite, several were seen in with a flock of (20+) Linnets on the saltings west of the car park and good numbers of Black-tailed Godwit and Avocets.
