Dawlish Warren

During an hour's seawatch from 13:45, a distant Skua, presumed to be Pomarine on size and time of year, chased a Kittiwake before landing on the sea. Also c10 Fulmars, c20 Gannets, 110 Kittiwakes and c50 auks, mostly Guillemots, moving south. A Razorbill rescued from the surf died later.

On the sea, at least 5 each of Great Northern and Red-throated Diver, Slavonian Grebe, 80 Common and 3/4 Velvet Scoters and Long-tailed Duck.

Water Pipit in front of the hide.
