L R P Day

A day out birding with my mate Andy Bond with our first stop at the Matford Marshes to look for a reported Little Ringed Plover from yesterday & after a bit of a search we found the bird but found out that it had no eye-ring so it must have been a 1st year bird ?
We then went to the Powderham Park to look for yesterdays Osprey but there was no sign of it today but we did see around 30-50 Little Egret`s in with quite a few nesting Grey Heron`s and a bit further on we had a male Yellowhammer on the Powderham road ( a very good bird for the Exe Estuary area ) , the next stop was at the Powderham Marsh but we only had 3 Chiffchaff & a Blackcap was heard singing , the last stop of the day was the Exminster Marshes where there was 3 Greylag Geese & a very nice adult Little Ringed Plover .
