Exminster Marshes

Walk around the southern part of the marshes late morning. A single marsh harrier was near the lagoon and a juv. hobby over Station Road. Elsewhere a flock of c50 lapwing was the most I have seen this autumn and duck numbers continue to grow. An assortment of feral/hybrid geese now include bar-headed, snow and several crosses with Canada geese. Overhead a few skylark and chaffinch all going west. Heard water rail (x2) and Cettis. As I was leaving there was 1 (possibly 2) cattle egret near the railway bridge.
