Orcombe Pt., Exmouth.

Early morning 3 Pomarine Skuas [ 2 LP and 1 DP ] initially seen off  Dawlish Warren "boathouse" arrived off Orcombe Point, settling on the sea but occasionally chasing terns and gulls before disappearing. Mid-morning, and another 3 were seen on the sea off the seafront, all LP this time. After some time, they were joined by a Bonxie, took off, climbed high, facing South , and were blown North up the Exe, backwards! Earlier a group of 5 Bonxies flew West, and a dozen Pale-bellied Brents.   All the Poms were full-spooned crackers!
