Topsham and Exmouth

High tide at Bowling Green saw good numbers of Avocet and Dunlin some Knot, Pintail and the usual Redshank and various ducks, all very jumpy but no raptors seen - until later a female Kestrel at the veiwing platform. Not much of note on Goosemoor except 1 greenshank.

Mudbank had approx 6 Turnstone in amongst lots ot Brent and Pintail and Wigeon etc. 

Bird of the day a female Black Redstart at Exmouth Docks.
