Highlights from Exe Est from recreational playing fields to Countess Wear bridge: 55 Brambling & 28 Chaffinch in my garden are both record highs, where Reed bunting numbers have fallen to 6 (from recent high of 16). A single Gadwall on the river is my first since moving here in 2002. Also 1 adult Yellow-legged gull, 28 Coot, 4 Little grebes, 2 Pochard, 6 Tufted duck, 1 Goldeneye. Starling roost has moved out of the reedbed further down river.
