Dawlish Warren

Thursday 25th -Sunny but NW wind and cold on the Warren. Rewarded with the drake Scaup feeding in Shutterton Creek on dropping tide & 5 Eider on edge of main channel into the estuary on the Warren side. About 2pm went to Langstone Rock, where there was a Red throated Diver spending more time under water than on top and 30+ Common Scoter well offshore. A trawler attracted a large following of Gannets - didn't count them, too busy trying to keep tabs on the Diver.
