Thursday 2nd September

Terns were again the main feature of the day with at least 280 Common Tern heading out of the estuary early morning, these were counted from Exmouth, interestingly only two flocks totalling 61 were recorded from the seawall. Also offshore before 8am, 46 Balearic Shearwater and a Great Skua flew east.

An evening watch from the seawall saw 466+ Common Tern return to the estuary to roost between 6.30-8pm. At least 150 Common Tern were in the estuary by 5.30pm so even allowing for the hour uncounted over 600 were again present. Also offshore at least three Arctic Tern were picked out amongst the flocks and nine Balearic Shearwater flew east.
