On Friday I cycled up from the tramsheds to Coronation Corner and counted 57 Dunlin. A lone 1stWinter Shoveler was the other point of interest. Further up the valley I could see a pair of Gadwall on the Axe from the Farm Gate. We've done really well for Gadwall this Autumn/Winter so far, with 7 together on Black Hole Marsh the last Saturday in November being the peak. Around Colyton we still have Redwing, Fieldfare & Little Owl but not much else.
