Bowling Green Marsh
The Barnacle Goose was again in with the flock of Canada Geese on the marsh today , other highlights were numerous Black-Tailed Godwit with a few Bar-Tailed Godwit in with them , 17 Red Knot , 4 Ruff , 4 Whimbrel , a juvenile Curlew Sandpiper , an adult winter Spotted Redshank , a male Peregrine Falcon flew in and made a few attempts to catch a wader but it had no joy and it went and sat on its usual tree for a while before flying off down river , a Eurasian Hobby flew through the marsh very fast towards Goosmoor !! and the Osprey was again sat on the old ships mast on the Clyst Estuary .
