River Otter - Honiton

Went in search of the 5 Cattle Egret previously reported but only found 10 Little Egret at same location in fields with cattle. (Nice nevertheless).  Also seen:  Peregrine resting on river bank and in meadows a flock of 36 Pied Wagtail, 110 Herring Gull, 2 Cormorant, 4 Mallard and small number of Canada Geese. Unfortunately the river is not accessible to public here (but maybe because its closed to public the birds congregate here).  There are a few minor roads which cross the River Otter and the one from Clapper Lane, Honiton is safest to stop and park.  

Happy New Year everyone.
