Black Brant

No sustained birding today. Saturdays are now dominated by Joel's football but a flying early morning visit to Orcombe Point was possible and I was pleased to see the black brant feeding with 56 dark-bellied brent goose and 7+ turnstone on Maer Rocks. Unfortunately it took off with part of the flock and headed back towards the Warren before I could try and photograph it. No sign of any purple sandpipers today and the top fields were notable only for 7+ song thrush, 1 grey wagtail, c20+ meadow pipit, c30+ linnet, c40+ skylark and 5 snipe.
This rock pipit was feeding beside the leisure centre carpark.
