A quick morning look at Bowling Green Marsh got me a male Common Pochard , 20+ Pied Avocet and a Spotted Redshank .
My next stop was at Mudbank Lane in Exmouth where you can look out onto the Exe Estuary . And I was soon looking at the bird that I had come for , a splendid looking male Garganey that was showing very well with a Eurasian Wigeon . Also showing were around a dozen Common Gull .
I then had a look around the top fields at Gore Lane but it was dead and the best I saw was a Grey Wagtail and a few Common Skylark .
