Puffin

As it was blowing a bit when I woke up this morning I went down to Orcombe Point at Exmouth to do a sea watch but it didn`t turn up much at all with the best birds being a Puffin that was sat on the sea ( The first one that I have seen for quite a while ) & a single Manx Shearwatwer that was heading east !
Other birds seen were numerous Gannet , around 10 Kittiwake & 5 Shag , I then stopped of at Bowling Green Marsh on the way home where there was 4 Sandwich Tern`s in with the numerous gulls .
