Coleton Fishacre/ Scabbacombe

Following a call from Dave Norman of an early Golden Plover on the fields NW of Coleton Camp car park I went to have a look, there are now two this evening, plus Yellow Wagtail with about 10 Meadow Pipits and Wheatear in the fields.

Just off shore feeding over the East Banks were 800 - 1000 Manx Shearwaters, 5-6 Balearic Shearwaters, 4  Arctic Skuas (2 dark, 1intermediate and 1 pale - all Ads) 2 Bonxie and one Black Tern among many gulls and Kittiwakes.  

I had to share my scope with some long-legged brute...
