Exminster Marshes

This evening there were 2 hobbies sitting on gate posts, one flew north as I left after a scrap with a peregrine. Another peregrine caught a moorhen. Lots of swifts continually moving through. Also 5 wheatears NE of the railway bridge. 5 gadwall included 3 males, the most I have seen for some time. No sign of the garganey that were present late yesterday evening and reported early today.
