Oare Marshes and Reculver 27th November 2009

Paul made a visit to Oare Marshes NR (unfortunately, I wasn't able to join him due to prior committments) and on arrival he watched a Barn Owl fly over the car park. It then spent a few minutes hunting over the East Flood. There were plenty of Golden Plovers in the area which gave him the opportunity to get the superb shot below.

Whilst at Oare, another birder told him about the Snow Buntings at Reculver so he decided to give it a go. It took about a mile's walk along the sea wall before Paul located the Snow Buntings, about 20 birds in all, but they were very flighty and made it difficult to get a photo, but he managed one record shot.
