Fremington Pill

Had a walk from Fremington Pill to Barnstaple via the Tarka trail today. Nothing much in the Pill apart from the usual Redshank's and a single Greenshank. I was surprised to see three Spoonbill's  fly up the Pill, they reached the end of the creek, circled around and went back down the creek towards the estuary at Fremington quay. Almost certainly three from Isley marsh I would think (10 at Isley yesterday).
Just a  single grey plover on the quay mudflats. Very quite on Penhill marsh and Anchor wood bank with just the usual stuff.
