Marshside RSPB - 10th August 2009

After a lunchtime text from Mike we headed up to Marshside to see the Wood Sandpiper that has been showing well since Friday.
Reece spotted it pretty much straight away after climbing out the car and wandering over to the viewing fence. Also around the area were 50+ Black Tailed Godwit, 10 Curlew, 6 Dunlin, Greylag and Canada Geese, and the usual Gulls.
Also showing well were 6 Kestrel hunting across the marsh to the left of Marine Rd.

Glad you found it. It seems to have been sunny looking at your picture, it was driving rain and drizzle when I was there. Nice smart bird. You don't often get W.S. around these parts although there seem to be quite a few in various parts of the U.K. at the moment. Some compensation for the G G Shrike, then. Mike
