Around the Axe

Amazing numbers of Golden Plover in the valley this morning (and an amazing lack of snow!). I could see 300 from Colyford Marshes hide, and later Ian M counted 600 from the A3052 at Bridge Marsh.  Also two Pintail on the Estuary.  Sea watchers this morning were rewarded with a single Great Skua west at 09:15 (GH).

Pintail - a bit of an Axe rarity!
