Budleigh - Exmouth

Dawn on East Budleigh Common.
Another look at the Otter today and then the long walk back to Exmouth. The Otter produced 3 gadwall, 1 shoveler, c20+ teal, c50+ wigeon, 5 little grebe, 2 cetti's warbler, 2 stonechat, 1 mediterranean gull and a female goosander.
The walk home produced the Sandy Bay black redstart, at least 4 purple sandpipers on Maer Rocks and a long-tailed duck off the seafront.

Little Grebes - River Otter - these birds were quite vocal.

A different adult Mediterranean Gull to yesterday's bird.

Several pairs of Kittiwake are back on nests at Sandy Bay.
