Northern Goshawk

A look at Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham turned up a real surprise today as a Northern Goshawk put in an appearance over the marsh this afternoon , it came in quite low but soon gained height and was all the time being harassed by a Common Buzzard until lost from view , also seen were 2 Little Grebe in smart summer plumage , 6 Swallow and in with them was my first House Martin of the year , 2 Blackcap & a Willow Warbler .
Later in the day I got news of 4 Egyptian Goose on the Exminster Marshes so I nipped over and walked down the path beside the railway line and found the birds ok but they were quite a way out in the marsh & I just about managed to get this record shot of them , also seen on the marsh today was a Grass Snake & a Field Vole !
