Bits and Bobs

This large and colourful Wheatear is probably a 'Greenland-type' - photographed on Orcombe a couple days ago.

Just a single Sedge Warbler noted on a quick scoot around Orcombe, after work this afternoon. Two Arctic Skuas were offshore, showing interest in c20+ Kittiwake that were lingering, and a White Wagtail was on the beach with c10+ Pied Wagtail.
A large gathering of gulls and terns off the docks included 3 Black Tern (Spencer had four), c10+ Common Tern, c30/40+ Sandwich Tern and at least 2 Mediterranean Gulls.
Just one Greenshank was the only bird of note off Mudbank.


  1. Nice to bump in to you today. Glad you got the Terns mate. Wonder where the other went?

  2. Also meant to say that I think I picked up on the same wheatear a few days ago and thought the same thing.
