Monday 7th April

Wader passage was the most obvious feature of the day with a flock of 41 Black-tailed Godwit dropping into the Bight. Six of these were colour-ringed, showing this to be the majority of the flock that had wintered on the Axe estuary in East Devon. Also in the estuary 46 Ringed Plover, 40+ Sandwich Tern, 25 Turnstone, 23 Dunlin, nine Brent Geese, five Sanderling, four Knot and two Grey Plover. Elsewhere the Glaucous Gull was around Warren Point and Exmouth, an Osprey flew north early evening and four Tufted Duck were offshore with 45+ Common Scoter, six Manx Shearwater, single Red-throated and Great Northern Diver.

Wildlife News: The Common Seal was on Bull Hill.
