Exminster Marshes

Late morning into the early afternoon visit to Exminster Marshes, most of the bush thickets were full of bird song, the big Q was what was singing? Did manage to spot two male Blackcap, several Chiffchaff one of the days highlights being a well marked Warbler that turned out to be a Sedge Warbler the other highlight were the Hobbys, four in view on several occassions, a number of pictures taken show the birds carrying prey items, birds seen to be feeding in flight on more than one occasion.

Good passage of Swallow and House Martin, one Sand Martin seen.

Canadian Geese had the company of at least three Bar Headed Geese and a small number of Grey Lags also on the marsh.

Only a few very flighty Wagtails to be seen, possibly put off by the presence of the Hobbys.
