I got news this morning that there was a Lesser Redpoll showing at the Recreation Ground in Topsham . So I went down to look for it and after a while I found not one but four of them and as we dont get them there very often I was well pleased with that ( Thanks Martin )
Later on news came out of a male Common Redstart on Bowling Green Marsh a very very rare bird for the marsh . So off I dashed again and the bird was showing a bit distant but still showed very well . Also seen were 2 male Blackcap , 2 Common Chiffchaff and a Barn Swallow . The day then ended on the Exminster Marshes with my first Short-Eared Owl of the year so quite a good days birding .
