Thurlestone

After 3 months plus, I thought it was about time I took a look at the Desert Wheatear, and what a cracker it is. It flew out of a rabbit hole(?) in the embankment at the back of the beach at about 07.25, and went straight up on the WW2 pill box at the top of the cliff at the south end of the beach. Sat there for about ten  minutes, then I lost it.

Didn't see the reported Cattle Egrets, nor the White-fronts at S Huish.

This afternoon from the railway at Cockwood pretty sure there was a Spotted Redshank over towards the hide at Dawlish - anyone in the hide see it?
