Tarka Trail

A walk along the Pottington side of the Tarka Trail this afternoon. Wind very strong and an already rising tide. Groups of Mallards 30-40 out in the river. Just beyond the end of the industrial estate where Bradiford Water cuts through to join the Taw were about 30-40 Teal in groups along with some more Mallard. Further along in another field was a group of about 80-90 BH gull. A solitary Redshank was sheltering from the wind in a gulley. A huge amount of tree debris could be seen floating along in the river. Yesterday along the Pill at Fremington the 4 Glossy Ibis showed well and before the tide covered the sandbanks on the Taw large numbers of Crows could be seen on them.
