Good Numbers of dark bellied Brent Geese today with these birds seen throughout the Estuary and 400+ downstream of Turf Lock. The Slavonian Grebe put in an appearance between Cockwood and Starcross with 10+ Great crested Grebe showing in both Summer and Winter plumage in mid section of the estuary. High point in this area and the River Kenn confluence where 5 Greenshank with good numbers of Redshank showed the comparison between the two. The Golden Plover flock was out on the mudflats opposite Turf Lock with small groups airborne above them. The numbers of overall bird count are reducing now as expected for this time of year with less Avocet numbers seen however small numbers put on a show with flying displays near Topsham along with Black Tailed Godwits, a few Bar Tailed Godwits and 200+ Dunlin showed well. Overall it was a good cruise today with the weather dry and clear visibility.
