River Axe at Bleadon

A walk along the bank of the River Axe and also the old Axe at Bleadon today produced the following:
12 Teal, a pair of Goosander, 12 Green Sandpipers, at least 30 Snipe, 4 Kingfishers (allowing for possible double counting) and 3 Roe Deer. On the old Axe were a pair of Canada Geese, 2 Cormorants, 18 Mallard, 4 Tufties (all male), 7 Goosander (5 redheads and 2 males).
On my return there were 9 Goosanders close to and on the west side of the A370 road bridge, presumably the 7 and 2 I had seen earlier.
