Sherpa Marsh

Late afternoon walk down to the Marsh was quite productive, especially if you like Canada Geese. Didn't get an accurate count but 250+ moving off towards the Great field in small groups until the farmer put the remainder up while he was changing a battery for his fence. Around the pond were 1 Common Sandpiper, 2 Green Sandpipers and a Wood Sandpiper, which flew off with one of the Green towards Braunton Marsh. Also a single Ruff. Several Teal on the pond with a couple of Little Grebes. Over on the Pill, a Common Sandpiper, and at least a 3-figure count of Mediterranean Gulls. I hope Rob will post later with an accurate count - he was on the west side of the river with a telescope.
