Redshank


Redshank - Leisure Centre.
 
Very windy, few birds and not much birding. A couple drake goldeneye (with a single female) were off the sailing club last night, but the best I had today were a couple red-throated divers and a few kittiwakes, gannets and a fulmar past Orcombe early morning. A small duck zooming around distantly in the gloom was almost certainly a long-tailed duck. There was at least 1 harbour porpoise off Sandy Bay this afternoon, as well as a handful of guillemots and at least 1 razorbill.
The black redstart was still around the sailing club on Thursday evening at least.
 

There are always a few brent geese feeding  on the exposed rocks on Exmouth Beach and Sandy Bay in the winter.


The view from Orcombe Point this afternoon.
