Monday 14th May

The highlight of an evening visit was the weather with little new in the way of birdlife. Offshore the two Eider were still present but Sandwich Tern were outnumbered by paragliders (7 to 6). Elsewhere 21 Dunlin, seven Whimbrel and six Sanderling were in the estuary and offsite a Red Kite over Powderham was the closest the record Devon influx got to the Warren.

Wildlife News: A Grey Seal was offshore, a Fox caused consternation amongst the Oystercatcher on Finger Point and butterflies included further sightings of Holly Blue.
