Spotted Redshank, WeBS

A Spotted Redshank at Passage House was the undoubted highlight of this morning's count, although unfortunately it remained quite distant. It wasn't seen during the middle part of the day but appeared again this evening as the tide rose. Other waders were quite well represented with 78 Oystercatchers, 43 Curlew, 31 Redshanks, four Greenshanks, two Black-tailed Godwits and a Bar-tailed Godwit between Passage House and Flow Point, and 33 Turnstones at Teignmouth. Other totals included 19 Canada Geese, 18 Shelducks, 16 Mute Swans, 10 Red-breasted Mergansers, 10 Little Egrets, 11 Cormorants and eight Shags.

On Friday five Mandarins were at Rackerhayes along with two Blackcaps.
