Powderham - Turf - Exminster

10.30 - 1500. Walk Powderham to Turf and then Exminster Marshes. Highlights, as will not dwell on the huge numbers of regular waders and geese. Failed to see the Snow Bunting in the morning, but showing well on way back as reported earlier by Nick P. A Kingfisher feeding in the run below the sluice. 3 (2M,1F) Red breasted Mergansers below Turf. 8 curlew in fields by Turf. 3 little jack snipe put up in a channel near the RSPB Station Road Car Park by the arrival of other birds. A good day in lovely cold bright conditions.
