New years eve - River Exe

Started at Bowling Green, hoping to see the American Wigeon - alas no! Lots of the usual waders & ducks. Best a spotted redshank close to the road. 6 RB mergansers off the the viewing platform, with a small flock of Bullfinch on the way to it. Onto Exminster, no access by car or on foot from lion rests end. An interesting - if a Canada Goose can be - in a flock near to the rspb car park. Another larger group of RB mergansers off of Powderham.
