A minimum of 15 mediterranean gulls around Exmouth this morning included 7 juvs together early morning on the beach and 5 adults this afternoon off Mudbank. Also - seafront - 4 common sandpiper, arctic skua, 13+ common scoter, 4+ common tern and a really smart 'new' juv yellow-legged gull which spent a long time trying to land on buoy 7 (apologies for yet another awful photo). I was hoping it would come closer but it never did.
