This morning I went to Exton Railway Station where you can look out over the Exe Estuary and this Osprey was sat out in the middle of the estuary , there have been a couple around for a few days so it was good to catch up with one of them , while I was there I also saw a few Common House Martin and Barn Swallow and a single Common Swift .
Later in the day saw me at Bowling Green Marsh to catch the high tide roost and I saw 200+ Eurasian Curlew , 20+ Whimbrel , 200+ Black-Tailed Godwit , a single Bar-Tailed Godwit , numerous Common Redshank , 20+ Dunlin and a single Red Knot .
