Dawlish Warren

20 Common scoter, 1 velvet scoter and the surf scoter although very distant. Also 3 slavonian grebes, 10 great crested grebes, 15 eider, 1 black throated diver, 12 sanderling (at Warren Point), 80+ knot, peregrine.

Across the Exe, the redhead Smew was still at Bowling Green Marsh.

Forgot to add last night - A faded Red Admiral butterfly on the wing at Exminster Marshes around lunchtime. Successfully overwintered.
