Bonaparte's Back

The Bonaparte's Gull fed off Exmouth Quay again from 1605 - 1630 this afternoon - often down to just a few feet. Also 1 Great Northern Diver off there and nearby - 2 Great Northern Diver and an adult Mediterranean Gull from the Grove. On Maer Rocks there were 9+ Purple Sandpiper and 4 Turnstone, with a Great Northern Diver offshore.
Yesterday a quick look off the Grove produced 60 Dark-bellied Brent Goose, 1 Eider, 2 Red-breasted Merganser, 3 Great Northern Diver and 2 Sanderling. Eleven Linnet were on the Imperial recreation ground.
Finally, on the 5th, I found at least one Water Rail in the small reed bed at West Lodge, following no records in Exmouth last year.
