Recent Easterly Highlights

It has been quiet of late at the Teignmouth end of the patch, with a peak of 12 Sandwich Tern the best the Salty has had to offer, but a few random flyovers have just about kept it ticking over, two of them welcome house ticks.

Overnight on 8th May at least two Common Sandpiper were attempting to migrate through the low mist- more expected here in autumn. Early(ish) morning on the 11th May a couple of Siskin west over Bitton Park were unseasonal, totally unexpected though was a vocal Moorhen calling overhead on the night of 12th May. Finally, and a long awaited house tick, a single Red Kite flew North over the town at roof height late morning on the 16th May.
