An early afternoon visit to Stodmarsh and an adult Mediterranean Gull was seen flying over the A249 at Detling.

After finding the Marsh hide the Black-winged Pratincole was seen on the ground near a Greylag Goose. The reduced red on the bill and the tail shorter than the wings should eliminate Collared Pratincole.

Tried to find a Turtle Dove without success but did see a fly over Hobby (which some were calling as Peregrine!) and two drake Garganey from the viewing ramp. Also a Ruff there.

Then drove over to Oare Marshes seeing another Hobby over the M2 en-route. Very little at Oare - the highlight being Avocets and 5 Little Egrets.
