Pochard


This Whinchat was still present on Orcombe yesterday but there was no sign on a brief search today - just one Stonechat and a couple of Yellow Wagtails of note.

A morning look off Mudbank, before work, revealed 1 Pochard, 1 Tufted Duck, 2 Teal, 98+ Pintail, c200+ Wigeon, 3 Pale-bellied Brent Goose, 2 Dark-bellied Brent Goose, 120+ Mallard, 1 Turnstone, 2 Black-tailed Godwit, 6+ Bar-tailed Godwit, 3 Whimbrel, 2 Greenshank, 11 Redshank, 8 Dunlin, 35 Little Egret and 1 Kingfisher.
Juvenile Black-tailed Godwit
Drake Tufted Duck - this would have been today's highlight but it was trumped by a Pochard - a far rarer bird in Exmouth!

   

Brindled Green 


Portland Ribbon Wave
Vestal - one of three trapped last night. Other immigrant species were just 2 Silver Y and 4 or 5 Rusty Dot Pearl.
