Exe Estuary

One of the Ospreys was seen patrolling the main channel between Cockwood and Powderham, from 13:20 - 13:30, accompanied by the customary swirl of clamouring gulls. Then the same, or perhaps a second bird, was picked up shortly afterwards tucking into a fish-based snack on one of the sand bars in mid-channel, this time with a couple of crows hanging around for some scraps. All this viewed from the east side of the river.

Still no hirundines over here!
