Heath Cirl!

I'm used to seeing Cirl Buntings in heathland habitat around the Mediterranean but not in Devon, so this afternoon's singing male, on Withycombe Raleigh Common (against a back-drop of singing Yellowhammers), was a real surprise.

Yesterday off Mudbank - 103 Black-headed Gulls, 19 Whimbrel, 1 Bar-tailed Godwit and 6 Sandwich Terns.
June 4th - 95+ Black-headed Gulls and 6+ Sandwich Terns.
June 3rd - 19 Black-headed Gulls, 3 Whimbrel, 4 Bar-tailed Godwits, 2 Mallard and 82 small wader sp, distantly on Cockle Sands.
