Teign Estuary pm

Managed to tear myself away from Brixham harbour for a rather muddy scramble along the south bank of the Teign, from  Hackney Lane Netherton towards  Coombe Cellars. Around 230 pm the Glaucous Gull was on a sandbank mid estuary, until forced off by tide.Also present at least  8 Red-breasted Mergansers (a group of males were showing courtship display towards a female), Greenshank, Common Sandpiper.
