Tree Sparrow, Barnacle Goose and another Godwit on Redwell Marsh

Tree Sparrow, 14th October perched on the wires by the five-bar gate. A bonus bird after enjoying superb views of Short Eared Owl hunting the marsh before dropping into the saltmarsh.

With Barnacle Geese recorded on several dates on recent seawatches, the flocks of Pink-Footed Geese on the marsh are worth checking out.
