Paignton, Hollicombe Beach/Marine Parade.

A very unseasonal, possibly immature, Red-throated Diver off Hollicombe Beach this morning.

Also a sighting yesterday morning, at Marine Parade, of the Colour-ringed adult Med Gull, Green RLN4. The bird's sightings record and previous posters, show that the bird has wintered in the Bay each year from 2016 to 2019. It was ringed as a chick at Jablines in France, east of Paris, in June 2015.
