Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull with Herring Gulls
A few birds off Maer Rocks early this morning - 7 Common Sandpipers, the first I've seen in Exmouth this year, 6 Common Terns, c40+ Sandwich Terns, 2 Mediterranean Gulls, 1 juvenile Yellow-legged Gull, c40+ Common Scoter and a Grey Heron that flew across Dawlish Bay.
Another, or possibly the same, juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was briefly off Mudbank with 3 Mediterranean Gulls later in the morning. Otherwise, just large numbers of Black-headed Gulls and a small scattering of Whimbrel and Turnstones.

New Tawny Tubic - Batia Lunaris - just 4mm long!

Micro sp

Acorn Piercer - Pammene fasciana

Small Purple and Gold aka Mint Moth - Pyrausta aurata I think!

Hoary Footman - trapped by Nick last night.

Red Twin-spot Carpet

Marbled Conch - Eupoecilia angustana

Small Purple-barred - masses of these on East Budleigh Common this afternoon. Also several Silver Y seen whilst on a family dog walk.
