Powderham Corner, Exe Estuary

During the WeBS count this morning there were few waders, only 39 black-tails, and no waterfowl on the stretch between Turf and Powderham. There were four little terns including two juvs and one sandwich tern. A single ruff flew over and at 10.50 an osprey caught a fish (probably a mullet) off Lympstone and flew north past the Turf.

There was one wheatear on the sea-wall.
