Rillage Point to Watermouth

Two flocks of migratiing/dispersing Crossbills absolutely belting east, low over the clifftops, early this morning. The first had gone through before I could get my bins on it, the second was about 15 birds. Also 32 Swifts and 8 House Martins all heading east. Lots of Guillemots & Razorbills commuting up-Channel, almost certainly to feed chicks at Exmoor coast breeding colonies W of Lynmouth. Last week there were some sizeable (400+) offshore feeding movements of Manx Shearwaters.
