A very pleasant walk with Paul Kemp in lovely sunshine and next to no wind. 

Best bird was a Woodcock which gave good flight views in excellent light next to the track to East Soar Farm. Otherwise: c600 Wood Pigeons including c200 south and c300 west; 5 Goldcrests; and single Snipe, Chiffchaff and Reed Bunting.

Later at South Efford Marsh, an obliging Kingfisher fishing from posts, 3+ Common Sandpipers, 18 Curlews, and 42 Teal.
