Axe Estuary

On the River Axe today two Knot, six Bar-tailed Godwit and a second-winter Med Gull (the first for weeks and weeks!).

At Black Hole Marsh over high tide (late morning) there were singles of Greenshank, Curlew Sandpiper and Little Stint with ten Dunlin and five Ringed Plover, also two Green Sandpiper.

A brief sea watch from Seaton Hole during a gap in showers mid afternoon produced just four Brent Geese west. Otherwise very quiet.
