Always nice to see a Spoonbill off Mudbank. Not really up to speed with how many are on the Exe at the moment.
Three Black Swans off Mudbank today. The first I've seen in Exmouth this year. I think these birds spend most of their time at the north end of the river.
A fog bank, rolling out of the Exe, into the bay, is a familiar sight, from Orcombe Point, at this time of year.
One of at least 6 Yellow Wagtails remaining on Orcombe Point. It'll be sad to see them go...
The Great White Egret was again showing well in Blackhill Quarry.
