Teigngrace & Thurlestone

Teigngrace. Met up with Stan and found 3 Cattle Egrets located in field amongst the cattle further up the road from Blatchford Farm towards Stover and past the field with solar panels down to the bend in the road.

Trip down to Thurlestone beach the Desert Wheatear showed really well next to golf course with 2 Rock Pipits, 5 Turnstone, c10 Oystercatchers and Little Egret.

A walk over to South Huish Reserve a Kingfisher in reeds near footbridge, Ringed Plover and Black-tailed Godwit on the scrape with Teal and several Lapwing around the fields together with 2 Meadow Pipits, 2 Stonechats and a Mediterranean Gull amongst the Black-headed Gulls on the hill and 2 Razorbills on the sea together with a porpoise.

Many thanks Stan for the ride. Some video taken today.
