Exminster Marshes

Spoonbill again this afternoon, between the lagoon & railway line.

I managed to read the colour-ring and perhaps unsurprisingly it is 'FJ9', the Spainish-born bird first seen as a first-year on the Exe in September 2007 and seen in the county on several occasions since.

Also: 8 white-fronted geese still today and a male merlin yesterday (Sunday)
