I went down the Exe Estuary this afternoon not for anything specific but just for a drive really as it was not raining for a change ! I first stopped at the Oak Meadow Golf Course where I found the Black Brant in with around 300+ Brent Geese , I then had a look at the Exe Estuary from the Cockwood railway crossing but all that I could pick up was a dozen Red-Breasted Merganser , so I then started to head for home when I saw this very confiding Greenshank in Cockwood Harbour , it was a bit nervous at first so I just sat on the harbour wall and made myself as small as possible & waited for it to come to me and I just love the results that I got !!!
