Seaton Wetlands

In spite of the bad weather forecast 18 members of DB attended this mornings fieldtrip to Blackhole Marsh and Colyford Common.  Water levels were high but did not prevent us from reaching the hide at Colyford Common.  A good number of Lapwing (c900) were at Blackhole plus three Little Grebe close to the Tower Hide and a single Ringed Plover seen from the Island hide.  A Kingfisher was seen from the Study Centre.  The main interest came at Colyford Common with several Med. and Common Gulls on the scrape, plus others.  A distant and fleeting sighting of a possible Bearded Tit by the river was called but not confirmed.   A Grey Phalarope posted earlier was not found and the report unconfirmed.
