Thurlestone Bay

Day started off well with a BLACK TAILED GODWIT on the Marsh at 07.30 -only on site for 30 mins, also a female Teal and a single Sand Martin ,.


Seawatching from a seat overlooking Yamer Beach proved interesting- 270 + Gannet ( 2 big feeding flocks ) 27 Manx Shearwater, 6 Fulmar, 3 Sandwich Tern, then at 11.25 a male Nightjar few in off the sea only 30 feet above me and 20 yds to my right- Afterwards I did wonder if the wine last night had left its mark . The last one on the patch was in Aug 2008 when 1 flew over my garden but that was at 22.00
