So Quiet

Song Thrush - Orcombe Point

It's so quiet in Exmouth, even by normal June standards. I've got virtually nothing to report apart from a sudden increase in sandwich tern numbers yesterday, from zero to c25+, off the seafront. There was a first-summer mediterranean gull off there too and a grey heron on Maer Rocks yesterday morning. Today produced 26+ sanderling on a sandbar off the seafront. Otherwise I've had no late migrants and the estuary has been virtually devoid of birds.
