Otter Estuary (East Devon)

4 Wigeon, 3 Wheatear, 2 Whitethroat, Kingfisher, 3 Red-Legged Partridge, c350 Canada Geese and c100 Swallow were present on and around the estuary this morning, plus a white rumped Sandpiper (which I couldn't ID from a brief glimpse in flight).  The estuary was under attack from holiday makers (bless them) as the 'no boating' signs are missing and two dogs were rampaging across the marshes, plus several inflatable kayaks on the water putting everything up several times (an annual problem).

Could I make a suggestion to help visiting birders from outside Devon.... please give clearer locations as not everyone knows the sites, even the well known ones.  Perhaps give 'North Devon', 'East Devon' etc. in  the heading.
