Exminster Marshes 25th

Highlight for me were the 2 Bitterns at Turf, couldnt get both together, but the more dominant one forced the lesser one out in the open for most of the time I was there. Also a Water Rail showing very well off & on. But no Smew. A hawk of somekind also showed briefly, sadly not well enough to tell, only that it was not a Buzzard.
Rest of the single sightings more usual, Common Sand, Grey Plover, Kingfisher.
