Exminster Marsh

Exminster Marsh yesterday evening ~ Spotted Crake showing almost constantly occasionally chased around by a Water Rail, Kestrel, Marsh Harrier, five Sand Martin over one of the scrapes later joined by a flock of 100’s that then moved on, two Swallow the first I have seen this season.

A Spoonbill flew in and showed well, feeding very actively after preening, in one image taken can be seen to be swallowing a stickleback.
