Exminster and Powderham marshes

A good day on the marshes with Marsh Harrier and Smew showing well, and whilst at turf a flock of 10 White Fronted Geese flew over circled a few time and seemed to land on Powderham Marshes, later whilst calling into Powderham Marsh, i had good views of the W F geese in with the Canda geese from the viewing platform,also seen here were many Brambling and a good selection of tits larks etc, other birds reported on both reserves but not seen by myself were 1/2 Bitterns,Hen Harrier a few Woodlark, Oh and 1 Red Breasted Goose at Turf
