Exminster marshes

Mid morning walk around southern part. Two willow warblers singing and I lost count of the chiffchaffs (after 12). A single little-ringed plover on a pool near the railway line. Over 430 curlews roosting together with c30 black-tailed godwits, c20 bar-tailed godwits and 6 dunlin. Barely 30 wigeon but still over 30 shoveller. Also one db brent goose, female sparrowhawk, 6 tufted ducks and 6+ little egrets.

6 Cettis warblers
