Topsham

Watched from BGM hide from 18.15 - 20.30. Highlight was a brief (2 minute) visit from a LRP. The four Ruff were there but disappeared north for about 45 mins after being spooked by a Grey Heron. They were in and out a fair bit after that mostly along with a flock of Blackwits. Muscovy Duck still there. Also 2 Stock Dove, Barwit, Common Gull, BH Gull, Herring Gull, 2 Wigeon, 1 Teal, Greenshank, Redshank, Whimbrel, Curlew,Dunlin, 2 Oystercatcher, 1 Avocet,. About 6 Swallows through along with 2 Swift, 1 Sand Martin (House Martins along The Strand).  Reed and Sedge in reeds at the back of the marsh.

Nothing in the fading light from the platform or the Goatwalk.
