Instow C.G to Yelland Main jetty.

07:30 - 09:00

15 Pied wagtails on the cricket ground. 19 Whimbrel, 2 Common Sandpiper and 2 Little Egret on the foreshore. 8 Wheatear, 1 Common Whitethroat, 1 Stonechat and a smattering of Meadow Pipits and Linnets on Instow Barton Marsh. 3 Grey Herons were showing interest again in the fir trees on the old power station site, now that the generator pit ponds are infilled. Swallows, Martins and 1 Raven overhead. It would be interesting to find out where the Sand Martins are nesting now, seeing that they were also ousted from the generator pit ponds due to Health and Safety! Sedge and Reed warblers heard and seen in the overflow pond reedbeds. Just 2 Blackcaps and Chiff chaffs in bushes on the Tarka Trail.
