Turf & Exminster Marshes

A windy walk along the canal rewarded with a Spoonbill off Turf (around 1130) feeding & then tucked its bill out of sight; no tags, & right leg looked larger than left - but that might be the angle; 30 Little Egrets, inc. 21 lined up against the wall on the Topsham side. 1 Bar tailed Godwit.

The lagoon - we could count only 119 Coots this morning plus 16 Shoveler.
