Exminster Marsh

One last effort for the year produced, the very confiding redhead Smew on the canal by Topsham Lock and 2 Bitterns- 1 flew up the canal and landed in reeds just north of Topsham Lock and another flew across the canal between the viewing platform and Turf Hotel. Also seen Peregrine, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel ,Buzzard and also the Marsh Harrier was seen by others twice this morning. Several Reed Buntings along the canal.
