Oare Marshes

The Savi's Warbler from yesterday had already been singing this morning a tthe crack of dawn. But by the time we had got there, it had shut up and disappeared. We stayed in the area for a while before moving to Grove Ferry and Stodmarsh; which are both top reserves. Close views of birds including Bearded Tits, Cetti's Warbler, Kingfisher, Marsh Harrier and Hobbies. But the highlight was our first Turtle Doves of the year though 3 Nightingales singing during the day was nice.

Back to Oare for another listen for the Savi's didn't happen and as a consequence we were back home fairly early.

Great-crested Grebe from one of the hides, the light this time of year is amazing, especially when you capture the reflection well in the water. (c) Ashley Howe
