No Grey Phalaropes for me this morning, but a feeding flock of Gulls, Tern and Gannets just south east of the mouth of the Axe did contain at least 9 Balearic Shearwaters. At 9:30am an Arctic Skua came in from the east and investigated the feeding frenzy before continuing south west.

Very quiet up Axe Cliff this morning, just 3 Wheatears. A distant scan over the main scrape on Colyford Marsh showed 3 Ruff.
