Oare marshes. Kent.
After a 12hr night shift and only an hour and a quarter away this was too good an opportunity to miss, who needs sleep anyway. So at 5.30am i set off and on arrival, after some haystack dodging, i was there and soon viewing this great bird. Good views were had but a nightmare for pictures looking into the sun, but i was happy with a few record shots and a welcome addition to my list.
