At Brandon Marsh nature reserve - muddy bank on inland water with reed beds nearby. A fair distance away, so photos not too sharp, but I think I can see a white stripe above the dark forehead band. When flying, they looked brown above, without a wing bar. Flight reminded me of swallows - very fast and swooping. They ran very fast on land, like mice! Hard to track with binoculars or camera. New birds for me.
