Bowling green marsh

watched from the hide from 09:00 till 12:50

the lesser yellowlegs was eventually found in with the redshank on the far side and had probably been there  all morning seems to be very settled with this it's 4th day coming into the marsh at high tides it then showed well for an hour, those in the hide still witnessed a peregrine attempt a few attacks at the waders just missing a dunlin with the lesser yellowlegs taking cover with a few greenshanks. 

In addition to Steve cox post 3 spotted redshanks eventually showed well ( 2 juv, 1 adult) 23+ ringed plover, a water rail briefley and 2 sparrowhawk, 2 Cetti's warblers, 1 great spotted woodpecker, 6.+ chiffchaff, 1 jay, 1 Mediterranean gull 2nd summer, 13+ knot, 1 raven.

another excellent morning on the marsh
