Home Farm Marsh scrape

Not one, but TWO Great White Egret today on the scrape at Home Farm Marsh. Also counted 10 Greenshank on Fremington Pill which is more than we normally see. A flock of about 30 Wigeon flew past us as we walked back from the marsh up the Taw towards Fremington Quay before about turning and flying back down river towards Horsey Island marsh. Kingfisher fishing from the outfall sluice from the Nature Reserve.
