Inner Marsh Farm

A beautiful evening in a virtually deserted hide at IMF last night. Highlights were two very photogenic Wood Sandpipers that spent most of the time moving around the edge of No.1 lagoon and giving superb views as they, occasionally, walked infront of the hide. With Green Sandpier, Ruff, Water Rail, Yellow Wagtail and Marsh Harrier also present it made for a fine couple of hours birding.

The two Green Sandpiper present were less obliging.

The Ruff were a bit more so:

Whilst the beligerent Water Rail dashed out from deep cover to chase away anything that strayed into its small patch of mud and juncus.
