Little Gull

Laurie and I headed for Bundle Head early morning, but the bushes were mostly blown out due to the stiff north easterly. The only migrants about were c. 15 Chiffchaff, a couple of Fieldfare and a Grey Wagtail overhead.

Next we headed down to "The Watchtower" in Shaldon and were rewarded with an adult Little Gull which was first seen high offshore and then rather rapidly flew past us up the estuary beyond Shaldon Bridge. A single Sandwich Tern was also seen offshore heading south.

Finished up with several quick stops up the estuary, including Coombe Cellars and Passage House, to scan over the low tide, but no sign of the Little Gull or anything else of note. Another c. 15 Chffchaff were feeding around the saltmarsh and bushes at Passage.
