Prawle and Slapton

Short seawatch produced single Red-throated Diver and Balearic Shearwater, as well as 600+ auks west. Coming down off the Point, was lucky enough to see a 1st winter Glaucous Gull pass west - a big brute of a thing!  Very quiet elsewhere, although a Kingfisher along the front was nice. Both Water Pipits still in Horseley Cove, and the total of 7 Goldcrests was a good winter count for here.

Popped into Slapton late afternoon, both the drakes Ring-necked Duck and Scaup still on the lower ley from the bridge.
