Long-billed Dowitcher at Oare Marsh

A meeting in Orpington today put me close enough to Oare to try for the LB Dowitcher that returned yesterday.
I arrived at 4.30 in the rain and scanned the hundreds of waders finding Blackwits, Avocet, Golden Plover, Dunlin, Redshank, Spotshank, Knot, Snipe and Little Stint before eventually getting a shout from another guy that had located the Dowitcher in the far North East corner of East flood.

The drive home was a nightmare in heavy rain with the M25 and A2 being a real mess but I somehow cut through the traffic and made it home in about 90 minutes.

Year list now 247

And another Fox pic to add some colour.
