Yesterday I afternoon I went on a Woodlark hunt. After an hour I decided to try again another day & went to Exminster Marsh instead.
I had the big scope with me & as it's quite heavy I debated whether to walk around the reserve, or just stop at the few places you can in the van & take a short walk along the canal. I decided to go for the energetic option, after all you just never know what you may come across.....
Walking along the canal bank gives a great view across the marsh, but again the light wasn't good for looking at the birds, although it was nice to have a bit of sunshine!

I drove home a happy bunny!
