Now 3 Cattle Egrets

The Teigngrace 'flock' of Cattle Egrets has increased to three birds, present in the field west of the level crossing to 4pm at least.

A couple of other bits and pieces from my notebook over the past week:

31 Oct - Male Shoveler still at Decoy Lake but no sign of the Scaup or any Tufted Ducks.

29 Oct - Red-throated Diver, adult Mediterranean Gull, Common Scoter and 4 Red-breasted Mergansers south past Teignmouth yacht club between 07:20 and 08:50.

28 Oct - Firecrest still with c15 Goldcrests in The Ness, Shaldon.


  1. To add to your records we had a Green sand on the opposite side of the road to the Cattle Egrets on Friday followed by an Ad Med Gull, 3 Common Gull, 3 Red-breasted Merg, 2 Greenshank and 3 Common Sands from Coombe Cellars in the afternoon.

  2. Thanks Andy. Green Sandpiper is quite scarce in the area so that's a good record
