Plymouth area

Near Tamerton Foliot, at least 11 Cattle Egrets and 8 Littles in a field with cows just west of Allern Lane (at one point there were 22 Egrets in the air but I couldn't be sure of the exact split).

Nearby on the Tavy estuary, 2 Mediterranean Gulls (ad-w and 2nd-w), c60 Lapwings, Marsh Tit, a pair of Red-breasted Mergansers, 6 Avocets and 2 Roe Deer.

Later a brief look at the pool on the Plym Estuary produced 8 Oystercatchers, 4 Wigeon and a Common Sandpiper.
