Exminster Marshes

What a year it has been for yellow wagtails. Some years I am lucky to see one on the marsh. This year I have lost track and today another 6 with cattle close to the canal-side car park. One was an adult female with a very pronounced supercilium.
Nearby a flock of linnets exceeded 200 and were very difficult to count. Elsewhere c8 chiffchaffs, 4+ blackcaps and a distant osprey soaring briefly with 4 buzzards.
