We then drove up the coast to Marshside. At Sandgrounders hide the drake green- winged teal showed well, A female marsh harrier gave a fly past closly followed by several angry lapwings. A female scaup also showed well. The Avocets are always a delight to see and a couple showed well right in front of the hide.
A little stint fed with several dunlin from the screen on the way down to Nells hide. A couple of hundred golden plover mostly in summer plumage were glowing in the afternoon sunshine.
On the way home we crossed Downholland moss. We were rewarded with a flock of 66 curlew and a white wag feeding with a couple of pieds.
