6 Cattle egrets flew up river towards Countess Wear sewage works at 16:25 with a further 2 egrets at 16:45 probably also Cattle egrets (distance and low light prevented positive id). 2 Marsh harriers roosted in the Topsham Rec reedbeds, while 1 or 2 Sparrowhawks hunted Pied wagtails. Earlier two Red breasted mergansers on the river. Yesterday I found a Firecrest along the cycle path between Goosemoor and Darts Farm.
