Baggy Point and Turnpike Cross

My post from this morning on my local patch (Rillage Point) mentioned the passage of Swallows, but the absence of Sand Martins. This afternoon we discovered where all the Sand Martins were! After 11 heading out to sea from Baggy Point, we encountered a feeding flock of c.120 over grassland near Turnpike Cross, between Woolacombe and Georgeham. An amazingly large gathering given that it's still only just the last week of March... Two Swallows with the martins. Also at Baggy, a male Wheatear, 18 Pied Wagtails, 2 White Wagtails, and a Red Kite, which drifted off SE over Croyde.
