Rock Pipit - Exmouth Beach - one of two seen on a 'post storm' dog-walk this morning.
Mudbank today - best bird a Golden Plover - only my second in Exmouth this year. Also off there - 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 10+ Great Crested Grebes, 8+ Red-breasted Mergansers, 1 Peregrine, 4 Sanderling, 14 Bar-tailed Godwits and a Great Northern Diver amongst the usual stuff.
I was pleased to catch up with the Long-tailed Duck this afternoon. It was initially amongst c50+ Common Scoters off the seafront but for no apparent reason it took off and flew way out into the bay, on its own, before pitching down. I could only see 2 Purple Sandpipers on Maer Rocks but I suspect there were others lurking nearby.
