Dunlin - Duckpond.

At least 2 Brambling with small numbers of Chaffinches over Orcombe on a very brief dawn visit. Out again before dark this evening and two returning Purple Sandpipers on Maer Rocks and the presumed returning male Black Redstart in the Shelly Beach area were good to see.
Yesterday - 2 Lapwings and a Snipe in the Orcombe top fields after work and the first-winter Yellow-legged Gull off Mudbank, along with 55+ Turnstones, c35 Dunlin, 4 Black-tailed Godwits and a Greenshank.
On 3/11 - c80 Dunlin, 13 Redshank and an adult Mediterranean Gull.

Two Purple Sandpipers on Maer Rocks - masters of camouflage. Also 12 Turnstones and 5 Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

Turnstone - Duckpond.

Lapwing - one of two on Orcombe Point yesterday evening.
