Exminster marshes

A walk down Station Road to the canal bank and back revealed two female mallards both with broods of tiny ducklings, one brood of 11 and the other of 12. I thought this was going to be the only avian sign of spring but then c30 sand martins and 5 swallows flew over. A few chiffchaffs singing. Still about 20 teal and 4 shoveller on the pools.
