The Masked Intruder
I had a look at Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham this morning but it was dead !! and all I saw was 3 male and a female Northern Pintail , a male and female Tufted Duck and the normal waders for this time of year with 200+ Black-Tailed Godwit , 20+ Bar-Tailed Godwit , 50+ Dunlin , 10 Red Knot and 2 Common Greenshank , I then heard that the Penduline Tit were still showing over at Darts Farm so I went across and was treated to great views of these smart little birds , these birds have now been in the area since last December ...amazing ! and on the way back out a Stock Dove was on the grass but it only stayed for a short while .
