Following a call from Mike about a north-bound flock of Brents in Torbay, I checked Mudbank and sure enough there they were - a flock of 35 birds. Predictably they were Pale-bellied Brent Geese, at least the majority appeared to be, although the distance and light meant that the possibility of some Dark-bellied birds being amongst them couldn't be ruled out. The first of the dark-bellied birds should start arriving next week or possibly the week after.
On Orcombe this afternoon - 7 Wheatear, c20/30+ Yellow Wagtails in with cattle and c20+ Meadow Pipit. Not a lot else.
Little Egret - Mudbank.
