Bowling Marsh Green

Somewhat fewer birds than in recent weeks, that said, large numbers of Widgeon & Teal, good numbers of Shell duck and Shoveller, one male Pintailed Duck, one distant small Grebe species (still trying to ID it)

Large numbers of Black Tailed Godwits some males of which were begining to colour up round the head, neck & breast, Godwits were in company with a good number of Avocet 200 plus

Male Sparrow Hawk passed close by at the estuary platform, where a few Brent Geese were seen flying up river.

Bird were very jumpy today, area reeked of fox so that may have been the issue
