ITV comes to Black Hole Marsh

The Least Sandpiper & Black Hole Marsh hit the screens on ITV West-Country News on 05-08-16! ITV were filming in the morning to get general scenes of birdwatchers 'in action' as well as hearing people's thoughts after dipping the Least Sandpiper (not present at all today). This was then combined with my video footage of the bird from the previous two days and made into a short clip for the regional news. It was great to see the site & some familiar faces on the news and very satisfying to have my footage featured on TV. I imagine there's a good chance that there will be coverage in the local papers next week too; Black Hole Marsh is already a popular place so all this positive publicity is going to give the area another boost - great stuff!
