Bowling green marsh

Watched from 07:30 till 12:30

Firecrest still with goldcrests and let nag tailed tit group on the hill going down to the hide 

At the hide 111+ pintail , 800+ teal, 600+ wigeon, 1 peregrine,  3 ruff , waders were starting to build up when just after 08:30 the waders and ducks all went up just as the demolition of a house behind the marsh started soon the marsh was empty , the demolition machinery had caused panic among the birds apparently the new build will be over the next 18 months so lots of disturbance expected unless something can be done to stop the disturbance over the high tides.

around the viewing platform 1 kingfisher, 1 Cetti's warbler showed well , 8+ goldcrests, 3 chiffchaffs, 1 blackcap
