Trip to Exminster Marshes and Christmas Lunch on 13th December

Posted December 17th, 2018 at 4:00 pm in Mid Devon Branch by Inga Page

12 Members with welcomed guests from Plymouth, South & East Devon Branches, met on an extremely cold & windy morning but braved the elements to walk around the Marsh. We were rewarded with seeing 48 different species including a wonderful spectacle of a peregrine chasing a crow & eventually feeding off prey on the ground. Other highlights included Barnacle geese, Brent geese, Snow Goose, Snipe, Muscovy Duck, Lapwing, Mergansers, Shoveler, Tufted, Avocet, Stonechat & Bullfinch.
 
Everyone enjoyed a very friendly & sociable lunch together at the Swans Nest pub and were glad to warm up with some hot food & drink. 
 
We wish all our members a very Happy Christmas & an enjoyable bird year in 2019
