Bowling green marsh

After a cracking morning at Dawlish Warren got the train over to topsham and arrived at Bowling green marsh at 12:45.

A quiet afternoon but still some good birds with 3 Spotted redshanks ( 2 adult and a juv/first winter ) showing very well at times. There were 200+ teal and 60+ wigeon, 1 male Pintail, 1  male Gadwall and 2 shoveler. 150+ black tailed godwits, 15+ bar tailed godwit, 40+ dunlin, 2 knot 30+ lapwing, 2 jays and 1 female sparrowhawk.

A  good end  to the day
