Bowling Green Marsh & Exmouth

From the hide over the morning high-tide the 2 Spotted Redshanks eventually showed with 4 Avocets and the usual waders and ducks. From the platform a Perigrine was soariing high over towards Darts Farm with c15 Red-breasted Mergansers around the estuary and 2 possibly 3 Sandwich Terns on bouys near the Warren.

From Exmouth Docks on the dropping tide 5 Sandwich Terns were seen on the mud south of Cockwood steps with another 2 flying out from the estuary and along the Warren beach front and 11 Red-breasted Mergansers.

Another look at Bowling Green Marsh late afternoon showed Spotted Redshank and Greenshank around the platform and from the hide when the heavy rain returned c45 Sand Martins and 2 Swallows dropped down onto the marsh.
