Exminster Marshes

The ringtail hen harrier on the Exe appears to be roosting regularly at a location near to Exminster Marshes, and entered this roost today at about 1615.

Also of interest, amongst the large numbers of wildfowl and waders using the Marshes since the snow melt is a colour-ringed Icelandic black-tailed godwit originally marked as an adult on the Wash in 1996 and now visiting the Exe for at least its 15th consecutive winter!
