Torbay

Extra sightings from listed already-The female Eider still at Brixham near the Berry Head House Hotel.  2 Red-Necked Grebes and 2 Black-Necked Grebes in Brixham Harbour.  2 adult Med Gulls (1ringed) at Preston and c20 Common Scoter offshore. The Yellow-Browed Warbler still mid afternoon at Clennon Valley showing very well from the main path before the path that drops back to the YMCA, also still 2 Siberian Chiffchaffs in the same area. Also a probable Siberian Chiffchaff in Brixham at the back of the multi story car park behind the breakwater. (Throw in the White-Billed Diver showing really well from the Breakwater till mid morning,  c60 GN and c8 BT Divers, Black Guillemot, 3 BN Grebes at Broadsands, Purple Sands, Iceland Gull and Cirl Buntings- it's been quite a good day) !  The only downside was not taking Mikes advice of wearing Wellington boots at Clennon Valley-it is seriously very very wet and very very muddy!
