Tuesday 22nd April
The overnight rain and murky conditions avoided this corner of Devon so unlike other sites along the south coast no spring fall materialised with a single Yellow Wagtail overhead and a Wheatear on the ground the best of slim pickings. In the estuary a continued small changeover of waders with 90 Dunlin, 11+ Whimbrel, 10 Ringed Plover, 10 Bar-tailed Godwit, nine Sanderling, four Grey Plover and a Knot. Elsewhere two Velvet Scoter and a Red-breasted Merganser were offshore.
