Belated Bonaparte's

The wintering Bonaparte's Gull made its first appearance of the year inside the patch boundary on Tuesday when it showed along Teignmouth seafront. In other late news I saw a female Black Redstart last Sunday on a rooftop at the nearby docks.

Passage House at low tide this lunchtime produced four male Red-breasted Mergansers fishing in the channels, 21 Snipe in the saltmarsh and 14 Lapwings on the mudflats.

At Decoy, a Firecrest was again present in the woods, and the Scaup remains on the lake with 18 Tufted Duck, Gadwall, Teal and Kingfisher. (Laurie)

Four Great Northern Diver reported off Sprey Point this afternoon, yesterday one was inside the estuary at Teignmouth with 30+ Kittiwake south in 15 minutes late afternoon.
