Annual Common Sandpiper influx

Fourteen Common Sandpipers were at Passage House this lunchtime, with more probably hiding in the channels. Late July appears to be the peak time for numbers of this species on the estuary, with 15 counted at Passage House exactly a year ago and 17 on 25th July 2013.

Seawatching from Teignmouth Yacht Club from 15:20-16:20 produced 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls and an adult Common Gull heading south, and around 30 each of Manx Shearwater and Sandwich Tern.
