Spring Has Sprung

Had a quick tour of the river early afternoon, mostly looking for Night Herons. I didn't find any Night Herons, but I did see a few interesting bits and bobs...

On the Estuary were probably well over a thousand large Gulls, though I couldn't find anything different amongst them. Well, except for a Grey Plover, which is a bit of a local scarcity. It certainly got the local year listers moving!

A fuzy, out of focus and dull Grey Plover!

Best of all though was from the gateway along the A3052 that over looks Bridge Marsh. Over the Coly and the north end of Colyford Marsh were at least ten Sand Martins! YEAH! Spring is here :-)
