Juvenile Swallow - a few of these on Orcombe this morning. The only migrant of note was my first juvenile Willow Warbler of the summer/autumn.
More time scanning the gathering of gulls off the seafront this morning produced at least 1 juvenile Yellow-legged Gull, c10/20+ Mediterranean Gull, c30+ Common Scoter, 2 Little Egret and an overhead, river-bound Greenshank. An Arctic Skua patrolled the periphery of the feeding flock for some time.
A quick look at Maer Rocks revealed 2 Common Tern and at least 5 Mediterranean Gulls.
Off Mudbank - 11 Dunlin, 2 Sanderling, 20 Whimbrel, 18 Mallard, 3 Common Tern, 13+ Mediterranean Gull and 4 Sandwich Tern.
Yesterday off the Imperial rec - 18 Sandwich Tern, 6 Mediterranean Gull, 1 Redshank, 275+ Curlew, 1 Common Sandpiper and 1 juvenile Yellow-legged Gull.
A scan of Bull Hill produced 3 Kittiwake, 17 Sandwich Tern, 1 Common Tern and 17 Mediterranean Gull.
Blurry Yellow-legged Gull off the seafront this morning. Almost certainly two present.
One of three juvenile Mediterranean Gulls feeding around Maer Rocks this morning.
Silver-washed Fritillary -several showing well at Blackhill Quarry this afternoon.
Think the above is Stinking Tutsan and below - Small Stinging Nettle. I'd really appreciate confirmation or otherwise.
Walked the dog on the commons with Lu this afternoon - good to see the Tufted Ducks have had some breeding success.
Smaller Tree Mallow - Topsham.
Small Copper - Orcombe Point.
