I managed to check a few sites around a very cold and icy Exmouth today:-
Mudbank - 45 Mallard, 24 Pintail, 150+ Wigeon, 2 Shoveler, 3 Gadwall, 2 Grey Wagtail and 1 Kingfisher along with a few other, regular bits and pieces.
Bystock - 1 Firecrest, 1 Marsh Tit, 1 Treecreeper, 2 Nuthatch, 1 Moorhen, 1 Mistle Thrush, c30/40+ Redwing 1 Green Woodpecker and a Stock Dove.
Maer valley - 2 Firecrest, 2 Chiffchaff, 21 Curlew 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker, and 4+ Ring-necked Parakeet.
Orcombe Point - 2 Chiffchaff, 2 Stonechat, 1 Kestrel, 20+ Meadow Pipit, 22+ Skylark and 3 Snipe.
Maer Rocks - 11 Purple Sandpipers (lovely to bump into Carl and Jane).
Shelly Beach - 2 Red-breasted Merganser, 1+ Greenshank, at least 1 Shoveler, 1 Slavonian Grebe and 1 Little Grebe.
An estimated 30-40+ Redwings were feeding in Bystock reserve this morning. They're remarkably adept at concealing themselves in Holly. Also on the reserve - 1 Marsh Tit, 1 Firecrest and a Treecreeper amongst a few other bits and pieces.
A male and female Shoveler were in with a small group of Pintail, off Mudbank, this morning. Perhaps the same male was later distantly off Shelly Beach with what appeared to be two females. They were miles away though.
