Monday 3rd June

On the evening tide within the estuary and along the beach, selected counts were 138 Oystercatcher, 67 Sanderling, 44 Dunlin, 18 Ringed Plover, nine Great Black-backed Gull, nine Canada Goose including a pair with their remaining four goslings; six Sandwich Tern, five Mute Swan, four Little Egret and three Curlew.  

The first-summer
Bonaparte's Gull found early morning off Shelly Beach, Exmouth was seen distantly from Dawlish Warren, but outside the recording area.

Wildlife News: Both male and female Ornate Brigadier Odontomyia ornata were on Hemlock Water Dropwort around the Entrance Bushes. These plants are key to the survival of this nationally scarce species.
