Orcombe Point

This afternoon at 1455hrs, in temperatures more akin to February, 3 dark-phase Arctic Skuas passed the point close in, heading south-westwards. Earlier 10+ Common Scoter flew past heading west, and these were still present off Exmouth seafront this evening. About 50 Swifts were feeding low over the cliffs and top fields searching for any insect life that may have been present in the cold wind.
