In Topsham Cemetery this morning there were the following birds ! Great Spotted Woodpecker , Green Woodpecker , Mistle Thrush & Jay also seen was this cheeky Grey Squirrel .
Later in the afternoon I went over to the Exminster Marshes & met up with Dave Hopkins & we walked out to the metal gate that looks out over the northern part of the marsh & after a short while we picked up the female Hen Harrier a bird that most people have seen this year but not us !! so it was a welcome year tick , we watched it for about 5 minutes until it flew over the moterway bridge & was lost from view , also saw my first half a dozen Sand Martin`s of the year over the main lagoon .
