Where to see Dabchicks in North Devon

Anywhere around the Two Rivers Estuary, even at Barnstaple on one winter's morning. If they're feeding then you only see them for a couple of seconds before they dive again. They usually stay underwater for around 15 seconds. I've also seen them on Wistlandpound Reservoir.
