Exminster Marshes

During a brief visit in late afternoon, the Red-throated Diver swam past me at the canal car park (earlier it had apparently flown along in the M5 direction). On the marshes, 7 Pintail , 6 Gadwall, 100+ Curlews and a House Martin among dozens of Swallows and Sand Martins. Also from the canal: very distant views of a Marsh Harrier over Powderham Marshes.
