South Huish Marsh

Amusing, but slightly sad, to see this ill-equipped, Common Snipe trying to land and perch on a fence at South Huish Marsh this afternoon. Local guru Mike P on his informative Thurlestone Bay website has correctly renamed the Marsh as South Huish Lake! It would appear there is a problem with the now submerged outflow, leaving little, if any, reedbed. exposed for the likes of snipe! All the usual birds, as per Mike's website, present including Sparrow Hawk, Kestrel and Buzzard and a nice pair of feeding Stonechat.
