Exminster Marshes

A wander round this afternoon produced one Hobby (only!) over the lagoon area, 2 Grasshopper Warblers (one up the path by the Lions Rest Estate and another canal-side between fishermans car park and motorway bridge), 32 Wheatears, a Whinchat, a Bar-headed Goose near the S bends, c. 100 Swifts, hundreds of Swallows and Sand Martins but few House Martins, a single drake Shoveler and several Reed and Sedge Warblers, Whitethroats and Blackcaps.
