Tuesday 23rd April

 A trip out with the boys today and an early start saw us at Winterbourne Down where we saw 2 Stone Curlew , a Grey Partridge and a few Corn Bunting . We then went to Salisbury Plain where we saw 12 Great Bustard , 2 more Grey Partridge , 6 Red Kite , a lot more Corn Bunting , a Common Whitethroat and 2 more Stone Curlew .

Our next stop was at Marlborough Down where 3 Eurasian Tree Sparrow and 2 Northern Wheatear were added to the list .

We then decided to go to Normandy Marsh in Hampshire in hope of seeing a Marsh Sandpiper that had been reported there and I was soon getting very nice views of the bird . And with my last one seen way back in 2008 on my local patch Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham I was very pleased to get this one . Also seen was Spotted Redshank , Curlew Sandpiper , Common Tern and Little tern .
