Walking off the festive excess!

We decided to stay local for our first excursion of the year and headed for the Strand in Gillingham from where we walked to Motney and back in fine weather. Arriving at 09:20 (not bad for us!), and arrived back at the car around 13:45. Highlights included a count of over 1000 Avocet a couple of Marsh Harriers and the sheer variety and numbers of common estuarine wildfowl and waders so close to home.

Avocets, Brent Geese, Shelduck, Shoveler, Wigeon, Teal, Dunlin and Redshank
