Exmouth

Orcombe Point - late pm - I literally jogged around parts of Orcombe tonight with limited time to spare. Best birds were a short-eared owl flushed from private land (my sixth record for the point) and 3 dunlin with 6 sanderling on a limited stretch of sand just east of the point. Also c30+ skylark with 40+ meadow pipits in stubble and just 1 chiffchaff and 2 goldcrests.

yesterdays ring ouzel - appalling shot but it was almost dark!
