Broadsands-Brixham

Broadsands-Churston Cove
90+ Great Crested Grebes on the sea between Broadsands and Churston Cove, as well as 2-3 Black-necked Grebes, a single female Eider, 3 Red-throated Divers and about 70-80 Razorbill. A single drake Wigeon worked his way round from Churston to Broadsands. One Firecrest at Elberry Cove. Two Grey Seals in the bay as well. Edit: I forgot 5 Common Scoter off Churston.

A cursory look at the field behind the carpark at Broadsands yielded about a dozen Cirl Bunting, a single Reed Bunting and a handful of Linnet and Skylark.

Brixham
14 Purple Sands and three Turnstone present, but nothing else of note.
