Exeter and topsham

Got of the bus at matford park and ride this morning 06:20 and as I was about to cross the road by the Volkswagen car centre / garage I could hear a reeling Grasshopper warbler it was in a small bush and I watched it for 10 mins showing well and reeling away great way to start the day.

A quick look around Bowling green marsh between 15:00 and 16:30 produced the spotted redshank from the viewing platform , 1 1st winter Mediterranean gull , 15+ knot , 40+ grey plover, 6+ whimbrel, 12+ swallow, 5+ Cetti's warbler, 8+ blackcap, 5+ chiffchaffs, , 6+ buzzards.
