Apart from a Gannet the only other bird offshore this morning was a Great N Diver ( on the sea )

South Huish marsh held 5 Ringed Plover , 1 Dunlin, 1 Grey Plover, 3 Snipe, 25 Teal, 6 Wigeon. At 11.35 Nick T and I watched a Ringtail Hen Harrier quartering over the Marsh for 5mins before flying up the valley.

On Thurlestone marsh- 70 Teal, 4 Wigeon, 4 Shoveler, 2 Shelduck , 1 Little Grebe

at 17.00 feeding in my garden was a Willow Warbler - my earliest Spring record.
