Orcombe Point to Sandy Bay - September 26th


Two turtle doves just east of Sandy Bay caravan site today. One an obvious juvenile and the other I think is an advanced first winter?? Also a merlin chasing passerines over the top fields at first light and a steady passage of meadow pipits and finches though no counts were made.

An osprey again viewable from Mudbank Lane mid-morning and a high tide roost of 50 little egrets in poplars at Lower Halsdon Farm.
