Brixham and Berry Head

This morning, with John Lusher for part, Berry Head held 30+ Phylloscopus predominantly Chiffchaffs (several in song),2 Blackcap,2 Whitethroat,  3 Meadow Pipit, 2 Yellow Wagtail (by cows in field behind south fort), 2 Spotted Flycatcher.

     Yesterday a trip around the bay on Vigilance sailing ship produced a few Sandwich and Common Terns in misty conditions, the surprise being around 6 Bottlenose Dolphins (one calf) pursuing fish shoals at speed,  just off the breakwater as we returned into port at 1245. Boatmen tell me there have been few sightings in recent months.
