Great Bittern

News this morning of a Great Bittern on Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham had me dashing off down there in hope that it would be on show but after looking for it for a couple of hours and seeing no sign of it I gave up ! but I did see good counts of Eurasian Curlew , Common Redshank & Black-Tailed Godwit , 6 Common Greenshank , 4 Red Knot , 2 Curlew Sandpiper , 2 Spotted Redshank , 2 Whimbrel , 1 Ruff , 1 Bar-Tailed Godwit , a few Common Teal , 2 Stock Dove and a Lesser Black-Backed Gull was causing mayhem with the waders as for the last week or so it has been on the marsh killing and eating waders ! a thing that I have never seen before .
