Woodpigeons over Sidmouth

35,750+ Woodpigeons moved West over Salcombe Hill, Sidmouth 7.45-11.30.  Likely to be an conservative figure with almost constant movement along and below the cliff edge meaning that I no doubt missed some of the smaller flocks moving about half a mile inland.  Flocks of 100+ still moving west when I finally dragged myself away.

Also, 4 Purple Sandpiper on Chit Rocks at first light and a Dartford Warbler on Salcombe Hill.
