Brixham-Berry Head

The White-billed Diver mysteriously disappeared at 10:30, after moving up and back along the breakwater (Lifeboat to the fuel Jetty) a few times - at one point it was sat in the middle of the group of Great Northern Divers (hopefully DMN has a photo!). After it had not reappeared for 1.5hr, I wandered out to Berry Head, where yet more Great Northern Divers were sheltering, giving a total of 38 for Brixham-Berry Head (ML saw more off Broadsands bringing the Torbay total to c50), but still no sign of WBD by 16:00. A further 2 Black-throated Divers off Shoalstone bringing the total to 4. Of note while walking back from Berry Head with ML an unseasonal Manx Shearwater came out of Torbay!
