Exminster marshes

Early evening produced a hobby perched on wires making short hunting sorties. Lots of hirundines including a few swifts. A bright male yellow wagtail feeding under the hooves of brown cows. a male pintail, flighty teal, lots of small groups of vocal whimbrels and the odd curlew, a mobile group of black tailed godwits and a lone bar headed goose. A fox wandered around the marshes out in the open for at least an hour.
