Eider

Alan Ford reported four Eider off Teignmouth today; a good record during a scarce year for this species on the south coast of Devon. In other news, Kev has had a Black Redstart visit his garden since the 5th, Will has found a pair of Goosander a short way upstream from the patch boundary at Teigngrace, and during a visit to the estuary today, there were 16 Avocet, eight Wigeon, three Greenshank, two Common Sandpipers, and within the gulls, a possible 2nd winter Yellow-legged Gull, although it failed to open its wings and remained too distant to tell for sure. Eighteen Little Egrets were also feeding in a pig field to the east of Hackney Lane.
