Porpoises, Berry Head

During this mornings boat trip round Torbay, much porpoise activity off Berry Head including one which jumped right out of the water - unusual behaviour for this species. Birds were mostly resident or common wintering species, but a pair of mute swans were off Paignton Beach and a sandwich tern on a buoy off Brixham Breakwater Beach.

The Platform Topsham

While looking at the birds down the Estuary I saw a Grey Squirrel on the mud coming towards the river Clyst, and to my and others amazement swam across 30 ft of flowing water to our side, crossed the mud and up into the hedge.

The mud on the other side must be 250-300 yards from the reed beds which it also must have crossed. Never seen a Squirrel swim before let alone cross the estuary mud, but Iam sure there will be someone out there that has??
