The little river Mardle. The babbling brook that runs through Buckfastleigh.
I’ve seen Goosanders, Mandarin Ducks, Muscovy Ducks, floating upstream into it from the river Dart.
And in the last couple of weeks, Grey Wagtails; wibbling and waggling around.
I love how these wagtails suddenly shoot up above the water, twisting and turning in mid-air like tail-spinning acrobats.
