Barnstaple - Isley Marsh

A walk down the railway this morning produced 9 Goosanders on the sandbanks just West of the bypass, the Ibis and a Spotted Redshank in Fremington Creek, and 4 Spoonbills and c2000 very vocal and flighty Golden Plovers (with several hundred Lapwings accompanying) at Isley. Others of note were Yellowhammer (not a regular here for me), Kestrel, Redwing, Fieldfare, and probably 10 Water Rails calling from the ditches. Stonechat was a surprising omission, but still c75 spp. in total.
