Also seen were around 20+ Northern Gannet and a few Black-Legged Kittiwake

Friday 13th May

Well Friday the 13th didn`t turn out to be a bad omen for me ! As I went to the recycling centre at Exmouth and saw my first Yellow-Legged Gull of the year , a 1st summer bird .

I then went to the top fields at Gore Lane in Exmouth and walked the coast path to Sandy Bay and back and I saw a few Barn Swallow , 4 Common Whitethroat , Common Chiffchaff , Blackcap and I heard a calling Common Cuckoo . And at Straight Point there was over 300 Black-Legged Kittiwake on the cliffs .
