Oare Marshes

27th November 11.00 to 15.00 Dry but cold!
Male Green-winged Teal still present roosting among the Teal. The most surprising event was when we were watching the Long-billed Dowicher and doing a double take – as TWO Long-billed Dowitchers were feeding together on the East Flood! We only had one compact camera between us but managed this shot.

0830–1015 Pouring rain and dismal light but eventually caught up with
the Green-winged Teal centrally E flood. Teal numbers again building
and birds were restless–although the bird does seem to spend much of
its time roosting. Great video clip however by Jonathan L B , of the
bird active and  swimming  in open water prior to weekend.
