No sign of the Olive-backed Pipit this morning. I understand it wasn’t seen yesterday either, despite some extensive searching. Off Mudbank at 0840 – a female-type Scaup and drake Goldeneye. Also a Cetti’s Warbler in song at Lower Halsdon Farm. Yesterday off Mudbank – a Black-necked Grebe mid-afternoon and an immature drake Eider off Maer Rocks. For more Exmouth sightings go to
