A Garganey off Mudbank was today's star bird. They've been pretty much annual in Exmouth the last few years, but only in the autumn. Also off there today - 265+ Mallard, 2 Shoveler, 2 Wigeon, 6 Teal, 1 Redshank, 2 Greenshank and a Common Sandpiper. Lovely to meet Bay for the first time today.
Orcombe was quiet but 2 Tree Pipit, 22 House Martin and a juvenile Willow Warbler were logged.
Mothing was washed out in torrential overnight rain.
Tree Pipit - one of two on Orcombe Point today. This stunning juvenile posed for a little while.
Ring-necked Parakeet - Exmouth cricket pitch. One of two together. I'm regularly seeing parakeets around the Maer at the moment. Early mornings are best.
