South Efford Marsh - Egyptian Goose

Plenty of water on the Marsh! When I arrived about 10.15am, a Peregrine took off from near the top scrape. 100+ Wigeon, 50+ Teal, 9 Shelduck, 25 Curlew amongst the other birds on the marsh. A group of 50+ Canada Geese included an Egyptian Goose, the first I have seen there for 18 months or so! Smaller birds included 2 Water Pipit, 2 Bullfinch, 3 Stonechat and 3 Long Tailed Tits.
