Plymouth Sound

08.15hrs 30 Sep: 14 Cattle Egret in tight group flying in low past Bovisand, Jennycliff and then they flew out from Mount Batten breakwater where I soon after became unsighted from my location at Eastern Kings. The groups last observed flight line was all heading westwards along the Hoe, so they may have risen up over the Hoe (and over Plymouth) as they didn't pass  E/Western Kings to enter the Tamar. Also 2 Sandwich Tern, 1 ad Med gull, 5 Little Egret, 5 Grey Heron, 28 Goldfinch together and 1 Gannet.
