Newton Abbot - Kingsteignton

The female Ring Ouzel eventually reappeared and showed well in the same area on the racecourse late morning. Will presumably make itself scarce this afternoon when the racing gets going. Also 9 Wheatears, and a Sand Martin flew north. Later on, whilst watching the Firecrest at Hackney Marshes, I heard an unfamiliar rising call from the adjacent ditch behind Winners gym, and out swam the drake Wood Duck! After a short while it took off and flew towards the estuary.

A passing cyclist reported a Marsh Harrier at Hackney Marshes yesterday evening.
