Gone fishing. Axe Estuary

Saturday 10th. Colyford Marsh / Axe Estuary produced 3 little grebes inc. one who caught a fish in front of the tower hide & then proudly swam around for 5 minutes before eating it. Teal & Lapwing on the Marsh, with Curlew, Redshank & a solitary Black-tailed Godwit on the estuary. In the island hide where the barn owl has its lunch noticed something sticking out above the noticeboard - surprised to find the head of a snipe amongst the owl pellets. Obviously a barn owl with a varied culinary tastes!
