Start Bay

Did a seawatch from the midway car park along Slapton Line from 09:30. In an hour i saw 13 Common Terns and a Sandwich Tern. Hardly any Gannets or Kittiwakes but a few Fulmar moving south. 15 Sanderling and 6 Ringed Plover on the beach. Was giving up when i heard about the tern nos elsewhere so did a watch from Torcross until 12:00. Good to bump into my old mate Paul Roberts from Bridgend and by 12:00 saw another 19 Common Terns along with 29 Manx Shearwaters, Balearic Shearwater, Peregrine, 3 Arctic Skuas and a Black Tern. Paul had the best of it at first light when he had c 200 Common Terns, 6 Black Terns and a couple of Arctic Skuas head south. Sadly also a dead Otter on the main road in Torcross.
