Great Crested Grebes – Bowling Green Marsh, Devon

While travelling down to Devon and Cornwall to run some Landscape Photography 121s I detoured via Powderham Marshes near Exeter. 

There were a pair of male Garganeys present although they were too distant to draw and so I decided to head to Bowling Green Marsh to sketch from the new hide there. I did manage to hear Cirl Buntings singing on the way back to the car at Powderham. 

On arriving at Bowling Green I located the male Ruff which had been on the reserve associating with the Black-tailed Godwits but they were in an accessible area where the view was obscured and sketching difficult. I turned my attention to one of the sleeping Great Crested Grebes.
