Bowling Green Marsh - update

The Black-winged Stilt was present until 2050hrs at least, in fading light. When I left it was directly in front of the hide. Also an Osprey was seen circling briefly to the north of the marsh at about 1950hrs, before drifting off towards the Exe. Several Whimbrel were present and 19 Greenshank flew in at 2020hrs but found it difficult to settle. 8 Gadwall on the main pool. Cetti's and Sedge Warblers were also heard.
