Torbay

Left Paignton harbour 8.30am prompt as tide was falling fast. Sea calm with a South West breeze and definite requirement for winter coat and a woolly hat!


BROADSANDS: Black-Necked Grebe, 6 Brent Geese, 3 Shelduck (overhead).

ELBURY COVE - THREE QUARRIES - BRIXHAM HARBOUR: 14 Grey Heron, Kingfisher, 3 Purple Sandpiper, 20 Turnstone, 4 Rock Pipit, 2 Little Egret, Grey Seal.

BERRY HEAD CLIFFS: 28 Common Scoter, 500 Guillemot, 12 Brent Geese, 4 Razorbills, Porpoise.

MID CHANNEL TOWARDS HOPES NOSE: 50 Gannet, 6 Kittiwake.


A good selection of birds and wildlife and a pleasure to be 100 metres from the shore at a leisurely pace for most of the way.
