Dawlish Warren

Male American Wigeon seen late morning with c1200 Wigeon to the right of hide in saltmarsh, showed well for more than an hour until birds took flight. Birds didn't leave site, but most went further away into the saltmarsh & not seen subsequently, despite extensive search, am sure bird is still present.
 
Also early morning, 7.45-9.25 produced 6 Bonxie's, 2 Poms & 2 Arctic Skua's. Plus female Merlin went past hide on incoming tide.
