Friday 15th September

 This morning started early at Bowling Green Marsh and I managed too see 3 Curlew Sandpiper , Ruff , Whimbrel , Bar-Tailed Godwit and a Little Stint . I then had a call telling me from local birder Matt Knot telling me that he had just found a Eurasian Wryneck , so off I went in hope of seeing it and my luck was in as I got views of it feeding on the path in between the dog walkers flushing it off of the path .

A few more birders turned up in hope of seeing it but the bird had gone into cover and after a bit of a wait we decided to go to Seatown in Dorset where an adult Woodchat Shrike was showing well . And after a long climb up steep steps we got very nice views of the bird .
