The above photo was taken at Cheddar a week or so back, after we'd had snow. In the afternoon I went for a walk around there and although nothing too startling, seeing over a 1000 Coot, a few hundred Pochard and a smattering of Gt Crested Grebe, made for a very enjoyable walk.
However tomorrow I'm off to the RSPB's Bowling Green Marsh, at Topsham just south of Exeter. This photo was taken in May last year when there wasn't that much about, but lovely and warm. But recent reports of 600 Avocet and hundreds of Black Tailed Godwits is encouraging 3 men and a lady to venture there for a 9.45am start..... report tomorrow.
