Brixham Breakwater

A quick walk along the breakwater before weather closed in, saw only 4 Turnstone, 2 Purple Sandpiper. Watching a trawler coming in with nets out many gulls, gannets but also a smaller dark bird and on discussions with Mike Langman could well have been Pom Skua. Weather closed in to then see a goose and after much watching getting soaked managed to photograph for ML to ID a Brent Goose ( bernicia ). Through bad weather saw many other seabirds but too wet to hang around.

Still have places on Sunday boat trip, if interested text 07866202576.
