Kent Wildlife Trust - Oare Marshes

08th December 2011
I paid a visit to the Oare Marshes nature reserve yesterday, the site is managed by the Kent Wildlife Trust and is found on the Kent Coast near to Faversham.

It is a great site with a variety of habitats including grazing marsh, salt marsh and mud flats.
A number of waders were evident icluding Avocet, Redshank, Ruff, Black tailed Godwit and Curlew.
Also many duck species such as Widgeon and Teal. The reserve has three hides and a nature trail, for more information please visit the Kent Wildlife Trust.
Unfortunately I was yet again blessed with a blustery day which made photography extremely difficult and as I am still learning to use my new 500mm lens not all that successful, I did manage a few I liked though.
