Common Sand, Cuckoo, Hobbys

My first Common Sandpiper in Exmouth this year was off Mudbank this afternoon.
Orcombe - early morning - 1 Yellow Wagtail (west), 1 Willow Warbler, 1  Great Northern Diver, 10 Sandwich Tern and the drake Common Scoter.
Off Mudbank late this afternoon - 1 Mediterranean Gull, 1 Common Sandpiper, 30 Dunlin, 3 Black-headed Gull, 3 Bar-tailed Godwit and 10 Whimbrel.
Yesterday on Orcombe - 1 Yellow Wagtail (east), 1 Willow Warbler and 20 Common Scoter (flock of 19 plus the regular drake).

First-summer Mediterranean Gull

This evening's local dog-walk produced 2 Hobby, 1 Cuckoo and a Wheatear.
