Plenty of birds on show today at Marshside. Lots of waders and Pink footed, Greylag and Canada geese around. Also good numbers of Black tailed Godwits, Curlew, Lapwings and gulls. 1 GBB Gull. 1 Sparrowhawk. 1 Marsh Harrier. 1 Merlin flying around in the old sand works making the many skylarks very nervous. Also LT Tits, Great Tits, Linnet and Goldfinch around the same area. Quite a few Little Egrets and 5 Cattle Egrets together feeding near the cattle in the field, two of which were catching frogs.
