Seaton Wetlands

Spent much of yesterday at Seaton Wetlands by the River Axe at a Devon Birds meeting. We did manage to get out and have a look around in the morning. I’ve never been there before but was impressed. A lot of money has been spent in recent years creating new habitats and putting in infrastructure (boardwalks and hides) for visitors. It is managed by East Devon District Council.

We also saw a Peregrine and heard a Whimbrel along with a Kingfisher. Well worth a visit.
