Exminster Marshes

"I had a walk around the marsh between 11.00 and 1.00pm and had a good trio of birds, 5 Wheatears opposite the lions rest in fields, 15 Whimbrel by the s bends and just before the fishermans carpark on the right in the flooded fields, 1 summer plumaged Curlew Sandpiper and 1 Knot in amongst the Dunlin, also 5 Grey Plover there.

Best birds were on the way back along the path back towards the RSPB carpark 1 Iceland Gull in with the Herring Gull flock between 3rd and 4th plyon from the car park also a male Cuckoo below the 3rd plylon"
