Around the Axe (afternoone update!)

Another look about mid afternoon showed a juv Marsh Harrier hunting over Colyford Marsh. 

Other additions to this morning's totals during this afternoon trip out included a Bar-tailed Godwit and Gadwall opposite Axmouth FC, a second Ruff on Bridge Marsh with a Wood Sandpiper (the first Ruff was still opposite Axmouth FC) and a Little Stint on Black Hole Marsh.

That makes 16 different species of wader for me today on the Axe - not a regular occurrence!
