Cycled Braunton to Barnstaple hoping for a sight of the Ruff. Sadly it was missing. At Pottington at least 3 Bar-tailed Godwit, and 6+ Black-tailed. Counted a minimum of 311 Brent Geese. Along the way: Oystercatchers, Dunlin and Redshank in good numbers, Curlew well represented and one Turnstone. At Heanton 30+ Sanderling. Only 2 Goosanders (both drakes) one at Heanton the other at Pottington. A few Wigeon and Shelduck. In a small field between the river and Ashford were 4 Cattle Egrets. Large flock of Goldfinch/Linnet at Pottington.
