Wembury Point

More waders arriving on Langdon Beach compared to last week. 30+ Ringed Plover, 20+ Turnstone and 10+ Dunlin. A potential Curlew Sand in with the dunlin, noticeably lighter and sleeker appearance with the prominent features on the head. We were unfortunate not to get views of the tail in flight to confirm the species though. Also in with the dunlin was a winter plumage Knot, first time seeing one here. Also a Juv Bar-Tailed Godwit on the rocks. At the carpark, around 10+ Swallows and House Martins.
