Some good Exmouth birds off Mudbank today. This Lapwing headlined but the autumn's first Goldeneye, 2 drake Tufted Ducks, 3 Shoveler, at least 5 Red-breasted Merganser, 1 Great Northern Diver, 2 Teal, 9 Pale-bellied Brent Geese and 8 Sanderling were all noteworthy. Also today - 50+ Redshank, 2 Greenshank, 2 Ringed Plover, 6 Bar-tailed Godwit, 2 Grey Plover, 2 Black-tailed Godwit, 2 Kingfisher, small numbers of Dunlin and good numbers of Turnstone, Pintail, Wigeon and Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

Great Northern Diver - Mudbank

Two Kingfishers showed exceptionally well between the leisure centre and Mudbank today. At one point both birds flew inches above the pavement and inches from me as I stood with the scope.
