Dawlish Warren

Late afternoon on a rising tide, in front of the hide beyond the thousands of birds sheltering from todays storm, a nice winter plummage Scaup sat on the waters edge preening itself amongst four Mergansers. 435+ Great black backed gulls, 1000+ Oystercatchers, small numbers of Sanderling, Grey plover, Bl tailed godwits etc, plus large numbers of Brent geese and Widgeon. One Wheatear came in off the water.
