Exminster Marshes - Exeter

Walked from Exminster to Exeter along canal this morning. Bird highlights included - redhead smew on one of the pools on the marshes WSW from canal-side car park, 25 grey plovers also near the car park (may be highest number I have recorded there), 15 golden plover, c500 lapwing (courtesy of low flying helicopter that flushed them), one redpoll, 2 ravens, c50 redwing (near Double Locks), 2 fieldfare, one kingfisher, 4 chiffchaff and water rail (one seen plus 4 heard).
