Thursday 25th May

The increasing SE wind brought a Pomarine Skua and 30+ Manx Shearwater offshore this evening but the Warren missed out on the Red Kite movement over Exmouth with birds heading north up the estuary. Elsewhere counts over the high tide included 105 Dunlin, 15 Curlew, 12 Sanderling, six Whimbrel, six Grey Plover, a Bar-tailed Godwit and an unseasonal Redshank.

Wildlife News: The sunny conditions brought out at least eight species of butterfly including Wall and Brown Argus. A Golden-ringed Dragonfly along the Dune Ridge was a scarce visitor with both Hairy Dragonfly and Azure Damselfly were also on the wing.
