New bird for my Oare Marshes list

Male Bearded Tit.

I met up with Chiddy again this morning at approx 11am at Oare Marshes with the hope of seeing the Ring Ouzel's that have been seen on & off in the paddocks over the last 8 days , on my way into the reserve i had a brief view of a Yellow Wagtail on the wires just before the cottages which was a welcome year tick .

I met up with Chiddy and after a brief look over the East flood where we added Avocet & Black Tailed Godwit we continued our walk to the West flood to look over the paddocks , and after approx 45 mins Chiddy re found  the female Ring Ouzel which is a new bird for my Oare Marshes patch list ,  many thanks to Murray . W. for his information on these birds , very much appreciated.

We had a look from the West flood hide which was fairly quite other then a superb Little Grebe in full summer plumage plus there were several Med Gulls in and around the flood , we also added at least 5 Swallows from here.

On our way back to the car park we checked out the East flood again this time adding a single Common Tern roosting on the island with the Godwits plus the pair of Garganey were still busy feeding in the SE corner of the flood .

There were 2 male and 1 female Bearded Tit showing well close to the road although i never got a clear enough view for a clear photo .

There was also several Sedge Warblers near to the road including this showy bird.

Another scan over the flood produced another Yellow Wagtail plus several Grey Herons & Little Egrets were flying around and a distant female Marsh Harrier put in a brief appearance.
