Dawlish Warren

Viewed 1100-1500hrs.

Walked up the beach side against a cold biting wind and bumped into Dave Stone on the point where we continued the walk around together. No sign of the Long Tailed Duck but c20 Skylarks + 6 Red Breasted Mergansers + c10 Linnet + 2 Shag fishing around the moored boats in the estuary. In and around the hide the Water Pipit was very mobile around the bight area + Greenshank + 4 Redshank and numerous Oystercatchers + c20 Brent Geese on the golf course. Along the hedgerow behind greenland lake a very smart male Bullfinch landed close-by but soon disappeared low down out of sight.
