Exmouth

Belle Vue Road - 0850 - red-rumped swallow north over house and heading upriver. Also 1 peregrine, hobby (north 1238), 9+ red kite (all slow north 1225 and 1255, 3+ at 1630 and 4 at 1654), c20+ sandwich tern. All the kites have so far drifted down from Haldon, apparently hitting the river around the Powderham area before heading northwards.
Yesterday - adult mediterranean gull and grey wagtail.
