Sharkham Point & Torbay

After seeing 4 probable Velvet Scoters with Common Scoter at distance from Berry Head on Saturday, I went back this morning with the scope looking from Sharkham Point, just south of Brixham. Indeed there were 4 Velvet Scoter and 11 Common Scoter. Also to the south of the headland were another 65+ Common Svoter and at least one more Velvet Scoter. In scrub at the top of the point were 3 Firecrest and 1 Chiffchaff.

I popped in at Boradsands on my return to find the regular Velvet Scoter, 4 Common Scoter, 4 Great Northern and 1 Red-throated Diver & 5 Great Crested Grebes. 7 Cirl Buntings on seed in the second car park and also 2 Firecrest in bushes beside the car park.
