Seaton, Colyford and Black Hole Marshes

Totals for these three sites this morning: 9 Wigeon, 91 Teal, 2 Curlew Sandpipers, 6 Little Stints, 1 Knot, 3 Greenshank, 5 Green Sandpipers, 1 Ruff, 1 Yellow Wagtail, 10 Wheatear and 1 Whinchat.

Report in Seaton Marshes logbook of a Glossy Ibis on Tuesday 7th (mid morning) on the Estuary. The observer left his details so I will get in touch.

My theory (after hearing there was always only 20 on the Otter) is that one bird could be responsible for the Axe, Burton Bradstock (that evening) and Lodmoor (the next morning) sightings. That's if the Axe sighting turns out to be gen of course....
