Teign Estuary

Adult Spotted Sandpiper present this morning. This bird was on private land that I have permission to survey during WeBS and at present the landowner is requesting that the location is not disclosed (sorry!). However there is a reasonable chance it will show at Passage House this evening on the rising tide as this is where most Common Sandpipers congregate at high tide.

Update (20:00): No sign so far this evening, but for anyone wishing to look for it tomorrow, the landowner at Flow Point is now willing to permit access. Parking is available at Michaels Field playing fields in Bishopsteignton (SX904733); from here, walk c300m east along the Newton Road then c250m south down Flow Lane, under the railway to view from SX909728. Please do not leave the track/path, and under no circumstances attempt to drive down Flow Lane or enter the saltmarsh at Flow Point.
