Black-Legged Kittiwake

I was in Exeter today when I had a text telling me that there was a Black-Legged Kittiwake on my local patch Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham so I dropped everything and dashed to the car ! now I can hear what your all thinking WHY as it is a common bird and the answer to that is yes ... but not on the marsh as I think its only the second I have heard off in nearly thirty years of birding the marsh and a tick for me making my total at the moment 195 ( Thanks Tim ) .
Also seen today where all of the usual waders for this time of year , with a stand out 3 Spotted Redshank , a male and female Ruff , 1 Curlew Sandpiper & 1 Red Knot plus 2 Common Raven and a Stock Dove that dropped in quite near to the hide .
