Newton Abbot & Teign Estuary

Around the racecourse & Hackney Marshes this morning - 1 Whinchat, 1 Wheatear, 7+ Chiffchaff, 15+ Linnet, 30+ Pied Wagtail, 2 Grey Wagtail, 1 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Green Woodpecker. Overhead 1 Tree Pipit and 6 Ravens, and a mixed group of 200+ Swallows and House Martins.

The juvenile Little Stint was still at Flow Point at midday, keeping around the periphery of the small wader flock and chasing off any Dunlin that came too close!

A very brief look at Passage House produced 1 Greenshank and 1 Common Gull.
