Exminster Marshes

Reed warbler singing early this morning and then this afternoon, after heavy thundery showers, a ruff, short-eared owl, 80 swallow, 30 sand martin and 25 pale bellied-brents- which settled on West Mud and then headed high north at 1715.

Daily early morning visits over the past ten days or so have been notably quiet (and cold), highlights being a singing grasshopper warbler 8th-9th & reasonable nos of migrant blackcap, willow warbler & chiffchaff.
