A frustrating day of 'probable' sightings today, starting with a flock of c15/20 egrets, distantly over Maer Valley early on, that I'm pretty sure were Cattle Egrets. A little later I'm pretty sure I had a Tree Sparrow go north over Orcombe Point, at 1008, and at around 1240, two (or possibly 3) hirundines flashed between apartment blocks, on Exmouth quay, and out over the river, towards the Warren. My gut feeling was that they were Red-rumped Swallows. They were always flying away from me, gaining height, but they looked cream-buff underneath and not quite right for Swallow. I phoned Kev but they had no sign of them at the Warren.
Yellowhammer - Orcombe Point.
