Exe Estuary

Belated news from yesterday's Stuart Lines cruise in less than perfect weather: the party of 6 Scaup (2 imm drakes) gave excellent views off Lympstone Barracks. 4 were later seen flying and landing near Lympstone village. Otherwise, much the same numbers of waders as in earlier cruises, though more Knot (perhaps 50) and also more Lesser Black-backs than usual (c15).

As an aside, these might raise a smile or two: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y01_xf0UprM and www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHXQp-NhFuE&feature=related
