Exeter City, Exwick and Northbrook.

Apres haircut walk from town today, Peregrine on St Michael's Church - Lots of Lesser Black-backed gulls along the river. Great Crested Grebe pair, Kingfisher, approx 10 Sand martin and a couple of swallows (around the railway bridges) and beyond Exwick Paper Mill working upriver towards Cowley (and always away from me) a female GOOSANDER. Lots of people about everywhere nothing of note on Exwick allotments,but on the Northbrook brief glimpses of Dipper, Kingfisher and Grey Wagtail.
