Exminster Marsh

Glossy Ibis in the field with the Canada geese at 10:45 on Saturday in the field on the right as you drive through the marsh. This is not a shy bird, as most people were driving up to it and watching it from their cars without binoculars!

Apparently the Red Breasted Goose had been around a few minutes beforehand.

Plenty of Teal, Widgeon and Shovellers. The most enjoyable bird was a swan lifting it's wings on the water to be purposefully blown across the scrape without having to paddle.
