River Exe Cruise

Took a very enjoyable cruise up the river Exe yesterday afternoon with Stuart Line Cruises. The weather was dull but at least the rain had stopped and we all had great views of some of the estuary's regular visitors, including slavonian grebe, spotted redshank, long-tailed duck, brent geese, red-breasted merganser, peregrine falcon, avocet and good numbers of other wader species.
