Topsham Recreation Ground 8 - 9 a.m.

Early morning gull watching produced a presumed hybrid Herring x Lesser BB and a colour-ringed juv. Great BB - from S Wales I believe. The usual adult Med Gull and at least three Common Sands also present. As if that wasn't excitement enough a Peregrine took a Kingfisher - didn't see the strike but saw the result. With all the usual apologies for photo quality.
