With the recent influx of Southern Migrant Hawkers in the south east, I decided to head up to Oare to try for some photos (it's nearer than their stronghold in Essex!). I found 4-5 males patrolling the ditch leading to the East hide, but they rarely settled. When they did it was usually inaccessible, apart from once when one had the good grace to land close to me in the open allowing me to get a couple of shots before he was off again. I also got a shot of a male Migrant Hawker, which makes for a nice comparison.
