South Efford Marsh

15:00-16:00 very poor conditions however, Lesser Yellowlegs still present this afternoon viewed from the bench as was noted yesterday. The bird spent most of its time on the middle bank but occasionally flew onto the islands closer to the path. This is where we noticed the tail markings as well as the missing plumage on the left wing. 1 Greenshank also with the LY. 5+ Curlew and 3 Little Egret on the section of bank by the barns. As we were leaving approximately 300+ Canada Geese dropped down onto the marsh with what looked like 2 escaped Snow/Farm geese.
