Exminster marsh

Another good afternoon on the marsh from 15:35 till 17:30.

The 5 barnacle geese were between the lions rest industrial estate and the rspb car park on right hand side of station road and whilst watching them a kingfisher flew past. The water pipit is still in field between s-bends and main car park.

A peregrine had a dive at the wigeon but failed, suprise of the afternoon was a Jack snipe flushed with 7 snipe from field behind the swans nest pub by a sparrowhawk a good way to end the afternoon.
