bowling green marsh

A bit more detail to this mornings post for bowling green marsh watched from the hide from 06:20 till 10:15 and was a good morning with the Spotted Redshank showing  well from 06:25 till just before i left

It spent most of the morning asleep and was not disturbed by 2  Peregrine attacks but unfortunately for one of the godwits the peregrine was successful on the second attack and it landed on the marsh and proceeded to eat its fill of the kill before flying off leaving the remains to the crows

The other highlight of the morning was a female sparrowhawk which flew past the hide window at head height and only about a foot outside.
