spoonbills

A mid-afternoon walk at Isley Marsh and Yelland Quay, on an incoming tide, started very quietly but once we overlooked the Taw things improved dramatically. The highlights included 2 spoonbills, 6 bar tailed godwit, 5 turnstones, 1 swallow over the man made sand dune, 100+ curlew, 400+ oystercatchers (fairly evenly split between the north and south side of the Taw), and a grey seal.
