Bowling Green Marsh/Clyst Estuary

This evening produced:
2 Green Sandpiper on main pool. Plus 2 Wigeon and a Teal. Plus God knows what else lurking behind the high vegetation. (There were a few Dunlin lurking there at least). Also peering through the fronds of brambles directly in front of the hide is no joke either.........
From the viewing platform, the estuary held the Spotted Redshank again, at least 30 Greenshank, well over 100 Redshank, 4 Whimbrel and many Curlew and Black-tailed Godwits. There was also a Common Seal further down the estuary, led out on a sandbank which was rapidly being covered by the tide.
