THE top wader spot in the southwest!

Without a doubt Black Hole Marsh at Seaton has really shown what an amazing place it is for catching migrant waders in the UK. It has to be the best place in the southwest without a shadow of doubt. As I write there are at least 16+ curlew sandpipers present as well as stack of commoner waders, the place is literally heaving with birds. I've personally never seen so many curlew sands in one place and the following video is dedicated solely to these wonderful little waders:
