The weather was terrible this morning but news of a couple of Eurasian Spoonbill on Bowling Green Marsh saw me braving the the rain to go down to see them . also seen were a few Whimbrel , 8 Dunlin and a Red Knot .
Later in the day I went down to Dawlish Warren to look for a reported Melodious Warbler , the weather now was a misty drizzle so I soon got soaked . there was a few birders looking for the bird but for a long time there was no sign of it , then fellow birder Peter Vanstone said to me that he had it in a tree in the corner , I just got on it but it hopped into the next tree where I got a nice view of it . It never showed again for a very long time but at just gone 4 o/c it showed again in the same corner again and I and a few other birders got on to it , it never stayed in view for long and was always on the move .
Also seen were a few Willow Warbler , Common Chiffchaff , a Spotted Flycatcher , a Eurasian Sparrowhawk and a Jersey Tiger Moth .
