Budleigh/Otter Estuary

The two snow buntings are still present today (male and female - one looked like it had more white in the wing yesterday due to the soggy conditions!) Nearby an adult Med Gull on the Otter Estuary with at least 2 Water Rail calling and 1 Blackcap. A walk along the coast path was pretty good with 3 Crossbill over heading east and a Short-eared Owl flying around Otter Head. The cherry on the top was a flighty but vocal Lapland Bunting in the stubble field between Otter Head and Brandy Head with 80+ Skylark and 1 Yellowhammer nearby.
