Topsham & swifts

A quick look around bowling green marsh from 15:00 till 17:00

Also on show 3 male ruff , 6 knot, 120+ dunlin, 1 ringed plover, 7 grey plover , 12+ whimbrel, 6 little egret, 8 greenshank, 5 redshank, 1 mistle thrush, 30+ swallow, 15+ sand Martin 80+ swift, 10+ tufted duck, 15+ wigeon, 2 reed warbler, just before I left a hobby flew over the marsh.
