Stover and Brixham

There were 19 Goosanders (3 adult drakes) at Stover at first light, continuing to give exceptionally good views around the lake and in the channels. Also a pair of Mandarins, 2 Pochard, 7 Tufted Ducks, 2 Kingfishers and Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers.

The adult Glaucous Gull flew along Brixham Breakwater this afternoon, heading off towards Berry head, while the first winter Iceland Gull patrolled up and down for some time.
