Tarka Trail Ashford side.

Went for a walk along the Ashford side of the Tarka trail this morning. Dull and overcast with a milky sun trying to shine through the cloud. Lots to see. On the river side lots of Redshank, Oystercatchers and Curlew. Some Sheduck, Cormorants and Gulls on the sandbanks. Of interest was a pair of Goosander, the male displaying at times whilst they floated up and down the river fishing, coming close to shore several times. A Spoonbill and Great White Egret stood close together. On the land side where Bradiford Water comes to join the river were up to 40 Teal, some Canada Geese and more Oystercatchers.
