Mudbank - c0630 - 7 crossbill south plus 1 juv yellow-legged gull and 3+ common tern.
Orcombe Pt - c0700 - 1 green sandpiper over plus 10 swift west and 1 willow warbler.
Mudbank - 29/7 - 25+ whimbrel, 3+ mediterranean gull and 1 hobby. Also 5 ad med gull and 4 ad common gull the previous day.
Orcombe Point - 28/7 - 2+ crossbill west, 1 turnstone and 1 coal tit.
Clearly some crossbill movement happening at the moment. A further 8 birds on Bicton Common yesterday were more expected.
