Exminster marshes

Nothing like a bit of rain to bring the migrants closer. In the rain this morning there were at least 130 sand martins over the lagoon. With birds continuously arriving from the south and leaving to the north this number was just a snap shot. A few swallows with them and two over the canal included a male in song for over 5 minutes. Elsewhere chiffchaffs singing.
