The weather was glorious this morning so I went down to have a look around the top fields at Gore Lane in Exmouth and between 6.30 to 9.30 the birding was quite good as I saw 9 Northern Wheatear , a female Common Redstart , a Common Whitethroat , 2 juvenile Willow Warbler and a Common Chiffchaff , birds were also seen flying over with 5 Yellow Wagtail and a Grey Wagtail seen .
Later in the afternoon a look at Bowling Green Marsh got me the Eurasian Spoonbill that has been on the marsh for a few days , 2 Spotted Redshank , a juvenile Ruff , 3 juvenile Curlew Sandpiper , the long staying juvenile Wood Sandpiper , a Common Sandpiper , 2 Red Knot and a new in juvenile Little Stint the first for the marsh this year !
