Axmouth and Beer

In the driving rain this afternoon, the two Bewick's Swans were still at Axmouth. They were on the rapidly rising floodwater in the field opposite Axmouth FC on the Musbury road. (The A3052 was just about passable at Colyford, where the tramline crosses the road). Later on I also easily found the Velvet Scoter at Beer in the small Common Scoter flock off the beach. Best to 'scope this bird from the pathway/shelter at the top of the beach path if it's raining and the sea is choppy.
