Med Gull

A look offshore from Teignmouth early evening revealed quite a few gulls including a fine summer-plumaged adult Mediterranean Gull. It always remained fairly distant and eventually drifted off south. Also a male Red-breasted Merganser flew in from the north, suggesting it was one of the Exe birds dispersing.

Yesterday afternoon there were singles of Great Northern Diver, Great Crested Grebe and Razorbill offshore and 7 Red-breasted Mergansers in the estuary. At Decoy Lake two Great Crested Grebes were present but keeping their distance from each other, with the male Scaup, male Gadwall, 15 Tufted Ducks and 3 Lesser Black-backed Gulls also in attendance. The female type Black Redstart continues to show on occasion in the Tarrs Lane/Primrose Close area of Kingsteignton.
