R.Taw, Barnstaple. Pottington to Ashford Sewage Works. 1330 - 1500

Apart from what you would expect were:- 31 black-tailed Godwit; 5 Grey Plover; 11 Shelduck; 21 Redshank; 3 Goosander; 200+ Lapwing; 1 Little Egret; 2 Dunlin and 1 Great Crested Grebe.

On Penhill Marsh side of the river were just 14 Grey Heron.

On Bradiford reserve was 1 Kingfisher and about a dozen Teal. It is getting difficult to spot anything on the reserve from the Tarka Trail because of it`s overgrown nature.
