Bowling Green Marsh

Viewed over the dropping tide.

Goosemoor the Spotted Redshank showing really well with Greenshank and Kingfisher overlooking the water inlet.

BGM Viewing platform the American Wigeon was on the pool left of the footpath at 14:00hrs and from the platform good numbers of both Bar & Black-tailed Godwits, Grey Plover, Dunlin, Redshank and Oystercatchers.

Goatwalk 400+ Avocets, 120+ Golden Plover on mud near Turf Locks with good numbers of Curlew, Dunlin and more Black-tailed Godwits, Redshank and Red-breasted Mergansers.

On the walk back towards the hide the American Wigeon was on the pool alongside the road in BGM and still there when I left at 15:30hrs.
