Thurlestone is a small, archetypal English village. With its thatched roofed, cream and pink cottages it has become a well known stopping point. The village lies 5 miles west of Kingsbridge in Devon and takes its name from Thurlestone Rock, the so-called "thirled stone", an arch-shaped rock formation just offshore in Thurlestone Bay. Thurlestone Marsh is one of three small wetlands south of the village South Milton Ley and South Huish Marsh are the others. It is formed where a small unnamed stream flows through low-lying flat farmland just inland from Leas Foot Sand, a small beach just to the southwest of the village. This is a site that sees various visiting birds and 2005 saw two significant ornithological events (Devon Bird Report 2005): In late March and early April, a flock of 68 Garganey was offshore in the bay - the second largest flock ever to be recorded in Britain (the largest was a flock of 120 in Kent in the 1950s) and in August, a Least Sandpiper, a North American vagrant shorebird only recorded once in Devon previously, was present on Thurlestone Marsh.
