R.Taw. Pottington to Ashford Strand. 12:20

After reading other posts for the Taw Estuary, it would appear that the upper reaches of the Taw are still devoid of many waders apart from Oystercatchers and Curlew.

Off Pottington and Bradiford Water:- 4 Common Sandpiper & just 1 juvenile Dunlin. A flock of c400 Canada Geese.

Off Penhill Marsh:- 18 Grey Heron and 21 Little Egret.

Off the sewage works:- 1 adult Mediterranean Gull and 5 Whimbrel.
