New Year's Day Otter Estuary & E Devon Commons

A respectable 80 species notched up on foot from Budleigh Salterton today with the highlights being 3 Red-throated Divers (2 off Budleigh seafront and 1 off Chiselbury Bay), 50+ Common Scoter Chilsebury Bay, Green Sandpiper and Black-tailed Godwit in the LORP area north of S Farm Road, 4 Goosanders at Blackhill Quarry and Woodcock above Squabmoor Reservoir. It appears the flock of 34 White-fronted Geese have finally departed, despite being seen yesterday.
