Exminster marsh

After an early text of black winged stilt on exminster marsh made my way over but it had flown south so watched from 08:00 till 13:00 2 cuckoo's on site one around the lane from middle car park and one along the path by the railway line. A splendid Red kite drifted east and off over topsham an avocet dropped onto the scrape just before the fishermans car park. Still at least 2 hobbies over the lagoon and 18+ little egrets. The black winged stilt was relocated on powderham marsh and after making my way around to the viewing platform had distant views but my 5 on the estuary this year Another good day on the marshes
