Brixham harbour and Broadsands

A walk around Brixham harbour and breakwater gave good numbers of Great Northern Divers, Shag and Cormorants, a handful of Guillemots, one Black Throated  Diver, plenty of Turnstones, a Rock Pipit and Pied Wagtail on the breakwater.

Five Purple Sandpipers and up to five Gannets diving and feeding just off of the end of the breakwater.

At Broadsands a check of the coast line gave a counted 18 Great Crested Grebe and one Scoter. The “Cirl” car park gave no less than nine Cirl Buntings mostly males, one male Bullfinch and a female Reed Bunting , a check of the other car park almost came up with a total blank but eventually a Goldcrest showed.

Back at home 2 Siskin on the feeders and another pass from a Sparrow Hawk.
