I finished off the day with a trip to Marshside just in time for the hide to be locked up! Still the viewing slots are just as good in good wheather. I was treated to great views of the breeding pair of Avocets and their chick; which was actively feeding away without help from the parent birds. Who would have thought it a few years back! Apart from the Avocets a pair of eclipse Garganey appeared on the pool, but where very jittery and soon flew off towards the estuary, quite a nice suprise. Over a hundred Black Tailed Godwits, Teal with 2 young, and a Whitethroat singing away behind the hide also.
