An early morning trip over to the Exminster Marshes paid off as the female Garganey was showing a lot better than yesterday , but after a while she became quite elusive again ! then at around 10.15 as I was looking for birds of prey I picked up an Osprey flying over the marsh and watched it until it was lost from view over Exminster Village , a very nice bird for the day !
Other birds seen on the Marshes today were 11 Little Egret , 3 Grey Heron , 50+ Sand Martin , 6 Barn Swallow , my first Common Swift of the year , 3 Common Raven , 5 Blackcap , 3 Cetti`s Warbler , a Willow Warbler , a Common Whitethroat & 2 Lesser Whitethroat one in the usual place by the railway line and another one along Station Road .
