Exmouth

Orcombe Point - 0700 - 0800 - huge woodpigeon movement over Orcombe this morning. In first 20 minutes of light 1000+ in small flocks (c350 the highest) and then as the sun got higher the flock sizes increased to the point that I gave up trying to count but certainly tens of thousands before I had to leave at 0800. Looking east along the coast wave after wave of large flocks were all moving west, stretching right along the horizon from and well out to sea - an incredible sight! Also 4+ brambling, 2 mistle thrush, a couple reed buntings and smaller number of finches and thrushes.
