An evening visit saw the first Whimbrel of the year head east with seven Great Crested Grebe, six Sandwich Tern, Mediterranean Gull and a Red-throated Diver also offshore, two Wheatear on site and a Swallow overhead.
A second Whimbrel was in the estuary at high tide along with 326 Oystercatcher, 74 Curlew, 39 Redshank, 23 Teal, 18 Grey Plover, 17 Turnstone, six Dark-bellied Brent Geese, six Dunlin, three Greenshank and two Bar-tailed Godwit.
Offsite an Osprey was watched fishing off Exmouth, before heading up the east side of the estuary.
Wildlife News: A good day to see the Sand Crocus.
Success today at Dawlish Warren for the Sand Crocus. So many fully open, carpets of them. Had to be careful where to walk. @WarrenBirding @StephMurphy @JoKingDevon @Natures_Voice @wildlife_devon #flowers #sandcrocus #dawlishwarren pic.twitter.com/5ndRsxv8nZ— Tim Ridgeway (@TimTim292) April 4, 2023
