Countesswear - Powderham Marsh

Nothing exciting, just:

- along Lime Kiln Lane, c400 Rooks, including many begging juveniles, in the silage "stubble", so perhaps the c80 pairs from the Matford and Countesswear colonies, plus 3 young per pair;

- along the towpath, still a lot of song from Reed, Sedge and Cetti's, and Reed Bunting, and a brief squeal from a Water Rail, whether newly returned or breeding I don't know;

- on the main lagoon, several Tufted Ducks and a trilling Little Grebe;

- on the main body of Exminster Marsh, 3 Gadwall, my first of the year, 2 Wigeon, and a Med. Gull;

 - on Powderham Marsh -the regular Kestrel, and 5 unaccompanied and probably doomed Shelducklings.
