Just to add to Shai’s post regarding the directions to the Greenshank, please do not, for any reason, walk out into the golf course. If the bird is present, birding from the edge of the roadway provides excellent visibility and will keep disturbance of the bird and of the golfers and park personnel to a minimum.
