Arrived early to do a seawatch and look for grounded migrants. Very surprised to find a 1W Caspian Gull on the ground near the seawatching point at 07.00, it then flew to nearby rocks and was watched at close range for 10-15 minutes, plumage and structure spot-on for classic 1W Caspian. Little moving on the sea and few grounded migrants despite the overnight rain. I continued on a tour of the SE Devon hotspots and clocked up 112 species for the day.
