Exminster Marshes

At 5.00 pm 1 yellow wagtail , at the end of Milbury Lane, c250 black-tailed godwits flew south past Topsham and the swallows are still feeding young in the nest under the bridge over the canal at Topsham Lock.
Yesterday on Belstone Common (Dartmoor) a pair of wheatears were also still feeding young in a nest or very close to it. Also there 1 hobby and about 6 more wheatears.
