This Cuckoo was a very pleasant surprise on the seafront this morning. It flew from the direction of the Maer, over the lifeboat station and out to sea before turning back towards Orcombe point.
Off Mudbank a Dark-bellied Brent Goose was almost as big a surprise as the Cuckoo. Additionally - 15 Mallard, 3 Common Terns and 7 Whimbrel. Several small groups of small waders headed upriver as the tide dropped but I was only able to positively identify 12+ Dunlin and 4 Ringed Plovers.
I messed up with photos, as usual, but at least managed a couple record shots of what is a very unusual record in Exmouth.
My first juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull of the summer.
