South Efford Marsh Aveton Gifford

Decided to take a look around but I managed to get the directions wrong at first. Perhaps worth restating -when you get to the metal gate into the meadow, opposite South Efford House, you go through then turn immediately right and follow the inside of the hedge along a muddy track, until you get to a wooden gate.  Pass by the gate onto the  raised embankment path, which leads down eventually past  the pools to the sluice gate at bottom end. Same species  around as reported by others recently - Common and Green Sandpiper, Kingfisher, Water Pipits (up to 3 reported again), 3 Snipe, 2 Egyptian Geese, 2 Teal, 10 Wigeon.
