Ilfracombe and about !

This week I've seen the first pairs of Lesser BB Gulls back on their roofs. At Woolacombe beach today 100s of Common Gulls. On the coastal high ground above c450 Golden Plovers were flocking up, looking like they were about to make a break north out over the Channel. Similarly some Ravens were gaining a great height and headed off due west straight out over the sea, I kept them in my scopes for a while, maybe 6Km before they disappeared into the haze.
