3 little tern off the seafront early am + 14 eider, 3 great crested grebe and 2 presumed 'intermedius' lesser black-backed gull. One adult bird was particularly black but stood too far out on a sandbank for closer scrutiny. The above photo is of another 'intermedius' type photographed off Mudbank on Monday. Exmouth has been very quiet of late but 1 whimbrel off Mudbank and a manxie off the seafront on Monday.
