Exminster Marshes

Watched from 08:00 till 12:30, a quieter day around the marsh but still great views of the Barnacle geese initially they were on the left of station road opposite the rspb car park entrance, they later moved to the right hand side and were between the road and the lagoon still present when i left.

The drake American wigeon was viewable from the S bends/ middle car park between the road and the lagoon was elusive at times but with fewer wigeon on the marsh becoming easier to see.

No sign of the spoonbill  or water pipit this morning, but a couple of peregrines, 1 sparrowhawk, 2 kestrels and 5 buzzards, 4 cetti's warbler heard and seen this morning , and 7+ reed buntings.
