Red-Breasted Merganser

I started the day in the small copse at the top of Bowling Green Lane but all I got was 7 Redwing , a Bullfinch & a couple of Magpie , on then to Bowling Green Marsh where the highlight was a female Red-Breasted Merganser only my second ever on the marsh , there was also numerous Wigeon , 3 male & a female Tufted Duck  , a few Shoveler  , a female Pochard , 400+ Avocet , 17 Golden Plover & 2 Jay .
A look from the viewing platform at the Clyst Estuary got me lots of Avocet that had now left the marsh as the tide had started to drop , 200+ Dunlin , 25 Grey Plover , 15 Bar-Tailed Godwit , a Spotted Redshank & a Kingfisher .
