Bowling Green Marsh & Darts Farm

Normal residents at BGM this afternoon, however a nice supprise for many visitors to the hide was great close-up views of a Curlew Sandpiper in with a few Dunlin and Grey Plover in front of the hide. Always a pleasure to see male PintailS with three and a female on show on the main lagoon.

A quick visit to Darts Farm viewing platform produced 4 Brambling and 2 Reed Bunting around the feeding station with 30+ Golden Plover feeding on the fields towards the River Clyst and Plenty of Blacktailed Godwit and Brent Geese on show in the meadow next to the road.
