Home Farm Marsh R Taw - White Pelican

Timothy Smith has just reported a White Pelican seen from Home Farm Marsh Reserve this morning at 10.00am on South side of the Taw.  It then flew off and landed again nr Horsey Island SS485335. It stayed there preening and was still there when he left.  It flew unhindered,  no leg rings seen.

 Eds: Its the Dalmatian Pelican that's been in Cornwall for several months - its second recorded visit to Devon and hopefully it'll hang around this time
