A short midday visit to Oare Marshes today on my way to mothers.
From the road, the West 'flood' showed 1 Greenshank, East flood showing good numbers of Golden Plover, Blackwits, Lapwings and Redshanks. Also noted were a few Dunlin and 2 Curlew Sandpiper. On the mud flats a few Avocets were hiding behind the steep mud bank as it was low tide, 8 Shelduck in eclipse also on the mud flats and 6 seals hauled out on Horsesands.
A Grey Heron back on the East Flood finally succeded after a good fight to devour a medium sized eel.
