A cycle up the estuary  produced little of note and sill only found one Little Grebe. Venturing further up the river, however, proved more interesting with 7 Goosanders (3 drakes and 4 redheads) between Riverside caravan park and Plym Bridge. This included a very confiding pair which I must have watched for an hour - brilliant to be able to see the drake fishing underwater in the clear river.

Also 2 marsh Tits, 2 Nuthatches and 6 Mandarin Ducks (4 drakes and 2 ducks).
