Sadly way too high for a good photo but it's always good to see a Short-eared Owl in Exmouth - this one almost stratospheric over Orcombe Point this afternoon.
After work on Orcombe, late this afternoon - Short-eared Owl, 3 Jays, 16+ Chiffchaffs, 1 Golden Plover, 6 Stonechats, 1 Goldcrest, 12 Starlings, c20+ Meadow Pipits, 2 Blackcaps and a Great Spotted Woodpecker. Small groups of Woodpigeon were moving north-west and with them a total of 12 Stock Doves. Below the point a gathering of c1000 Herring Gulls held a few Black-headed Gulls and a single adult Mediterranean Gull. A Clouded Yellow moved quickly through the top fields.
Off Mudbank - 70 Black-tailed Godwits and 6 Pale-bellied Brent Geese noted.
I still haven't managed a good photo of a Jay in Exmouth, or anywhere else for that matter.
