Thurlestone Bay

Late update for Monday - 15 Whimbrel and a Dunlin.

Livened up un the evening - at 21.00  the first Hirundine roost of the Spring - a mixed flock of over 500 birds. Also a nice adult female  Marsh Harrier flying over the Marsh - could not see the tail defect which would indicate the Slapton bird .

Tuesday - Around the Bay - 45 Gannet, 5 Manx Shearwater, 2 Fulmar, 1 Sandwich Tern, 27 Whimbrel , 1 Sanderling.
This afternonn went over to the Warren NT car park (near Noss Mayo ) and had great views of the Woodchat Shrike
