Otter Estuary

Whilst successfully looking for the Bonaparte's Gull this morning a Common Sandpiper was also seen nearby. There had also been a report of a Green Sandpiper earlier. Three Whimbrel came in off the sea, flew around a bit and then flew off again. Later, walking along the estuary, 7 (seven) Wheatear were around one of the scrapes above the cricket field. A pair of Stonechats and a Brimstone were the only items of note on a visit to Aylesbeare Common in the early afternoon.
