Oare Marshes

Couldn't resist another trip to North Kent on a still warm afternoon.  The Bonaparte's Gull and Temminck's Stint had moved on by the time I arrived but there was plenty still out there to see.

Black-Tailed Godwit seemed fewer in number than the last visit but at least 300 was still a good count.  There were around 50 Avocet, 60 Dunlin, three summer plumage Golden Plover, three Curlew Sandpiper (two in summer plumage), six Ruff (four male, two Reeve), a single Green Sandpiper, a Little Ringed Plover seen in flight heading down Faversham Creek, one Spotted Redshank, two Whimbrel, three Yellow Wagtail, a juvenile Mediterranean Gull that settled briefly on East Flood, and two Bearded Tit.
