Another windy cruise today, with the highlights being Great Northern Diver off Shelley Beach; a female Goldeneye in Cockwood Corner; an immature Spoonbill feeding near the entrance to Cockwood Harbour (possibly the same bird later in the Clyst Estuary) and a group of five female Eiders in mid-channel, out on one of the sandbanks.

Between Turf and Topsham there were the usual large flocks of Black- and Bar-tailed Godwits, dozens of Shelduck, Grey and Golden Plovers, Knot and hundreds of Avocets and Dunlins feeding across the mudflats and by the river channel.
