Otter estuary




This Rose-coloured Starling stayed just long enough for this very poor record shot this morning. It was found about 0630 on the edge of the Lime Kiln car-park amongst the House Sparrows that gather in the saltmarsh bushes. When I arrived at 0715 it had flown off but fortunately re-appeared for a while before we lost it . Hopefully it will set up a routine. Also present was the Cattle Egret and nearby the Glaucous Gull, so quite a purple patch for Budleigh! Nice one Clive !
