Exminster marshes

The marshes are wet and attracting birds. A short visit in the early afternoon coincided with the high tide and a bit of sun; a winning combination. About 200 curlew were spread out over the lower marsh, nearest to Turf. Elsewhere c300 black-tailed godwits, c200 dunlin and c300 lapwing. A single snipe flew over the canal as did a kingfisher. On the canal bank - 2 chiffchaffs, Cettis and one goldcrest. The female peregrine was sitting on one of the pylons. So far this autumn just a few duck, mallard, wigeon and teal with a couple of shoveller.
