Plym Estuary & Saltram

Rather quiet today but I managed Snipe, 6 Greenshanks, 28 Turnstones, a solitary Dunlin, a pair of Stonechats, Green Woodpecker, 26 Common Gulls (including a 2nd-w & 2 1st-w), Redwing & 5 Roe Deer.

Very few birds on Blaxton Meadow when I arrived - apparently everything flushed by a couple of runners on the wall (this follows 2 dog walkers in this no entry zone yesterday). On the positive side however, lots of paddle boarders (& canoeists) on estuary & none flushed the birds. Many thanks to Ian Downing for posting something about this on Facebook. It seems to be working!
