Wembury and other

0630-0900 Quiet for Vis Mig this morning. 2+ Firecrests still present and 2 Brambling over. A few bits and bobs as well, the best of which were random - 3 Teal, 12 Wigeon and 3 Mute Swans. One Stock Dove in with 500+ Woodpigeon.

My wife then wanted a drive somewhere so I suggested Thurlestone and surrounding area as I had never been there and wanted to know why it gets many more birds than Wembury.... One Sanderling on the beach at Thurlestone and then on to Soar for the Sibe Stonechat - a stunner. Also had one Jay at Soar.

Thanks to the helpful birders and car park warden at Thurlestone who gave me directions to Soar.
