The Exminster Marshes

A look at the marshes this morning go me the female Hen Harrier that flew in from the Lyons Rest area & up to its usual spot on the north of the marshes , it was watched for about 5 minutes before it was lost from view ! also seen were Peregrine Falcon & Buzzard & 2 Water Pipit both looking splended in near full summer plumage , there was also quite a lot of waders on the marsh with the best being 40+ Bar-Tailed Godwit , 4 Dunlin & a Knot , also seen were 4 Cetti`s Warbler & 3 Chiffchaff .
And an extra Highlight was getting very close up views of  4 Field Voles !!
