Rillage Point to Widmouth Head (nr Ilfracombe)

1 Bonxie, 1 ad Med Gull, 1 Little Egret all passing W early this morning, alongside small numbers of auks, Kittiwakes, Common Gulls and an ad Gannet. Three Blackcaps and a modest influx of Blackbirds and Robins in the scrub. Chaffinch passage seems to be easing off now - just 52 today. First Fulmar of the new season patrolling the breeding ledges, only six weeks after the last of this year's young fledged!
