Whilst not as picturesque as the Otter Estuary at Budleigh Salterton, there is a much greater variety of birdlife on the Axe.
However I now realise that when Birders say that you can get close up views of the birds, they mean with a powerful spotting scope and not with a photographic lens! The 400mm setup I was using was not really enough.
