Topsham . Devon

I did a walk around Topsham this morning with the first stop at the small copse at the top of Bowling Green Lane where I saw 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker , 2 male Bullfinch , a Common Raven & 7 Redwing , then a look at Bowling Green Marsh got me the long staying male Long-Tailed Duck , 2 male Tufted Duck & quite a lot of Robin ,  a look then out at the Clyst Estuary from the viewing platform produced 400+ Avocet .
My pictures today are of our European Robin a nice looking bird for us and the bird of our Christmas cards & a common bird that we all take for granted !! but a rare bird for some of my viewers from around the world .
