Around topsham

A quick look around top sham from 14:45 till 16:15

No sign of the reported possible Bonaparts gull from nick nothing left in bowling green marsh when I arrived but from viewing platform the female long tailed duck was in estuary towards Exton station, 102+ whimbrel , 140+ dunlin,1 knot, 150+ black tailed godwit, 13+ green shanks.

From the goatwalk in topsham, the 1st summer little gull was showing well with the black headed gulls. 

From the church in topsham looked across to exminster marsh and had 1 hobby towards the motorway bridge and a peregrine flew over from topsham to exminster marsh 

Not a bad couple of hours looked forward to see pics nick of the gull.
