Spring Rain

Although not great for many things, today's light rain and grey skies looked perfect for downing some early spring migrants - and it did the trick!

I only had time for a quick look around the valley mid afternoon, but this showed a Wheatear on Seaton Beach that soon flew inland, two Sand Martin feeding over Colyford Marsh and two Sandwich Tern on the Estuary...

Dan J had several past Sidmouth this morning so there's probably been a decent arrival of these today

Spring Sarnies always look so clean and smart

It's been a great week for locally scarce wildfowl on the Axe, with Pochard, Tufted Duck and last night Billy had two pairs of Goosander drop in on Black Hole Marsh. Pity I didn't get to see any of these, but as ever thanks all for the texts.

Really excited for spring to get going properly now, and we seem to have got to late March remarkably quickly which is good news!
