Taw Estuary

Cycled along the Tarka trail from Braunton to Barnstaple this morning at low tide & counted 74 Shelduck between Chivenor & Barnstaple

So far, only 2 pairs with young, one with 4 juv's & the other with 6. This does beg the question why such a low number of the estuary total have successful breeding attempts?

Also 2 Curlew, 9 BH Gull, 3 Grey Heron & 2 Little Egret present.
