Jolly Farmers, Dartford

Without Johnny, I thought I would try and have a look for yesterdays Rough-legged Buzzard at Oare Marshes. On the way there, just out of Dartford, I had a look at the gulls at Jolly Farmers and found a 3rd winter Yellow-legged Gull.

 Instead of walking around Oare Marshes, I opted to stay on the road in the center of the marsh and from here, 2 Marsh Harriers came by at very close range. There were sunshine spells, but with the NE wind, it was still bloody cold. There were 5 Black-tailed Godwits also present and the same wildfowl as yesterday and that was really it. I drove half a mile up the road, back to Oare Village, and waited at the side of the road for an hour in the warmth of the car, hoping the Rough-leg might reappear. Only 5 Long-tailed Tits and Green Woodpecker were seen.
