Exmouth and Ideford Common

Mudbank - 0530 - slavonian grebe, 1 great crested grebe, c20+ sandwich tern, c200+black-headed gull but couldn't find the bonaparte's gull this morning. Also just 2 whimbrel and the brent goose still.

A late reed warbler was singing in scrub behind the house this morning

Ideford Common - 3+ redpoll, 3+ siskin and juvenile crossbill (photo). Noticeably more breeding tree pipits than on the East Devon Commons.
