Storm Ciaran Cachinnans

Nothing seabird-wise today but as I scanned from the seafront I paused to check the beach and there was one gull on it - a first-winter Caspian Gull! I fired off a couple photos, in awful conditions, and contemplated moving onto the beach to get closer, but it took off . Initially it headed towards the river mouth but was soon swept back over the town and I couldn't relocate it anywhere. Otherwise - just a male Common Scoter off there and a single Sanderling on the beach, up by the lifeboat station.

Mudbank was blown out too but 2 Greenshank, 2 Ringed Plovers, c50+ Turnstones and 17 Bar-tailed Godwits were logged.

Looking across to Langstone Rock. It looks as if Dawlish Warren received another battering.

Just one gull on the beach and it's a first-winter Caspian Gull.
