Powderham marsh

  A male Ruff here this afternoon, coming into breeding plumage, but unfortunately lame, hopping on one leg all the time. Also 3  Little Ringed Plovers, a Green Sandpiper, a Peregrine and a Raven.
  If these LRP's are different to the 4 on Exminster marsh on April 1st., we've now had 8 birds at least [one on March 17th ]. They seem more numerous every year now.
