Goosemoor . Topsham
I went for a look at Goosemoor in Topsham this morning as I had read that a Spotted Redshank had been showing there for the last few days and sure enough one flew in with some Common Redshank & Greenshank but my luck was out today as all of the birds walked towards where I was viewing them except the Spotted Redshank that went right over to the other side of the marsh , sods law as its the only bird that I havn`t got a decent shot of yet ! I have posted the picture of the Little Egret just to show how deceiving photographs can be as it looks like this bird has all dark legs but it must have just flown in from standing in mud and if you look closely you can just about see some yellow around the ankle .
