After our trip down from Sussex it was time to catch up with my dentist, and old friends in Chudleigh.

The toughest part of the morning was forking out £160.00 for a complex filling. I’m amazed how painless the actual treatment is these days.

Then I left Roz drinking coffee and returned to my favourite bird-watching spots of the region.

Up to Topsham, park by the railway bridge and walk down Bowling Green Lane. The old hide has been revamped since my last visit.

Sadly for me the tide was out and all that could be seen here were Canada Geese, Wigeon, Teal, Heron, Jackdaws, Black Tailed Godwits, Shovelers and Mallard.

No worries, on down to the viewing platform. The Exe looked lovely, an my Zeiss bins revealed Avocet, Grey Plover, Redshank, Curlew, and numerous Lapwing.

Here’s the view I had from the platform, looking up towards Dawlish Warren.

Then along The Goat Walk and a spot of lunch.

Up the strand, into a bookshop in Fore Street, and into the High Street.

Fennel and Mushroom soup, and a coffee in a room adorned with wonderful art.
