Penhill Marsh / Pottington

I carried out the RSPB Breeding Redshank Survey on Penhill Marsh this morning; as expected
no Redshank were found although single Common Sandpiper and Wheater were some compensation as were 7 Whimbrel, 4 breeding-plumaged Dunlin and a flock of 38 Bar-tailed Godwit (many in almost full breeding plumage and others still in almost full winter plumage) off Pottington early this afternoon.
