Topsham Rec

Further to my earlier post, I was surprised to find 7 Cattle egrets on the estuary at Topsham Rec at midday.  They soon flew off E towards the Clyst.  I assume that the 4 I saw flying up river earlier that morning connected with another 3 and returned to the Rec. But given the numbers around there could have been 11 in the area.  The Long-tailed duck was still on the river.
