Visit to Dawlish Warren by Plymouth Branch 14/9/2017

 Eighteen enthusiasts gathered on a bright and blustery day. While walking along the sand dunes common scotter, and later a red throated diver were seen out to sea with diving gannet, cormorant and shag. A rising tide encouraged a large number of oystercatchers to gather close to the hide mixing with two knot. High lights included thirty ringed plover scattered in the basin resting with dunlin with an active little stint among them. Low numbers of common and sandwich terns called as they flew off to find drier resting places. A pleasant day was spent with the need of the hide to shelter from the showers.Thirty nine species were identified
