Preston: 1 Black-necked Grebe, 6 Great Crested Grebes, 21 Common Scoter (54 Turnstone on prom!)

Goodrington: 4 Black-necked Grebes, 6 Great Crested Grebes, 8 Common Scoter, 1 Sandwich Tern

Broadsands: 1 Black-throated Diver, 6 Red-throated Divers, 2 Great Northern Divers,16 Great Crested Grebes, 7 Common Scoter, 13 Guillemots, 1 Razorbill (Red-necked Grebe possibly still present but Id was tricky looking almost into the sunlight- toward Brixham this morning)

(On 14th March I noted a column of 16 Buzzards soaring near Ipplepen. Managed to get six in photo!.)
