The first returning Purple Sandpiper was back on Maer Rocks this afternoon. Earlier a Great Skua off there and a passage of Kittiwakes but nothing more unusual.
On Orcombe - 4 Stonechat and at least one adult Mediterranean Gull. Late this afternoon the drake American Wigeon was again off Mudbank with a large Wigeon and Pintail flock. Otherwise a lone Shoveler, adult Mediterranean Gull and at least 4 Pale-bellied Brent Goose.
