Slapton Ley

Great start to the windy day looking at Start Bay when a fcy Black Guillemot flew north off the Memorial Car Park at 07:05. Could this be the same bird Dave Cope saw on 23rd September ? In Ireland Bay a male Ring-necked Duck, probably the bird that was at Beesands Ley earlier this year returning to the area. Also 2 Scaup ( fcy female and a male ), 92 Tufted Duck, c250 Coots and 2 Wigeons. Offshore heading north 7 Teals, 11 Pintails and 2 Common Scoters. 5 Brent Geese the other way.
