Had a couple of quick visits to Marsh Lane this week on Monday and Tuesday both at lunchtime.

On Monday the most interesting thing was the number of Common Snipe about with 20 on the grass in front of the car park hide and a further 25 on the grass to both the left and right of the hide.I couldn't count the number on the islands but when some one said he had counted over 70 in total I wouldn't want to argue.

When I first entered the hide a birder there told me he'd had a Jack Snipe on the left hand island but he'd lost it in the undergrowth.I searched but never saw it.

On Tuesday the only show in town was the now long staying Bar-headed Goose.It entertained by having a good wash followed by some water top running.
