Bowling green marsh

Watched from the hide 07:35 till 10:00

A bright morning made viewing difficult but was rewarded with 2 little stints an adult & juv then 3 juv curlew sandpipers flew in with a group of Dunlin as the black tailed godwits, redshanks began to come in they were all put up by the railway workers by the bridge. The curlew sandpipers didn't come back in but the little stints did. The juv peregrine dived into the waders twice and the kingfisher showed well on top of the depth marker. There was 4+ yellow wagtails and 1 sandwich tern and a brief spotted redshank.
