Train trip to Dawlish

Main interest at Dawlish Warren was 19+ Sandwich Tern off shore. 55+ Brent Geese flew over but as looking towards the sun, no chance to see if Dark or Pale-bellied. Nothing of real note land side though only looked briefly as purpose of trip was the beach.

On the way, and still there on way back were 20+ Egret. At least 10 were Cattle Egret, maybe they all were but train unfavourably too fast. Just south from Powderham Marsh RSPB, though probably hard to see from the road.
