Exe Estuary cruise

This afternoon's Stuart Lines cruise was perhaps most notable for an amazing succession of rainbows! That aside, there was an imm drake Eider off Exmouth and a female Common Scoter off Powderham Corner, the usual Slavonian Grebe at Cockwood, c10 Great Crested Grebes, maybe 150 Pintail around Lympstone, c110 Knot, a few dozen Bar-tailed Godwits, maybe 800 Golden Plover and hundreds of Lapwings roosting near Turf, 2-300 Avocets, 2 Greenshanks, c10 each of Ringed Plover and Sanderling and a sw Mediterranean Gull on Bull Hill sandbank. Only c100 Black-tailed Godwits - presumably most were on Exminster Marshes floods, as they were on Sunday. A Peregrine had a go at a Stock Dove over Warren Point and a Grey Seal appeared off the marina after we had returned to Exmouth.
