Prawle

2 goes at seawatching today, early AM and early PM. Nothing too spectacular, but 11 Red-throated and 1 Great Northern Diver, as well as small numbers of Gannets, Kittiwakes and Fulmars.  There was as usual a lot of Auk activity, with 580 east in the morning, and 790 west in the afternoon, mostly Razorbills today. 12 Common Gulls past were also noteworthy.

A soggy walk along the front (what happened to the quiet, dry spell of weather we were promised?), produced a Black Redstart (Langerstone Point) and 2 Water Pipits in Horseley Cove.

At Slapton Bridge in fading light, a good candidate for a tristis Chiffchaff showed up.
