Exe from Turf to Topsham

Mid tide this afternoon I rowed from Turf to Topsham and had good views of 50+ dunlin, 4 ringed plovers (all juvs), c30 sanderling and one curlew sandpiper. Also 4 shelduck and about 50 black-tailed godwits. All dispersed by peregrine at about 4.30.

The osprey was reported carrying a fish south of Turf. Also reported were a couple of wheatears.
