Very Strange

The highlights in my garden today were a Female Great Spotted Woodpecker , a juvenile Eurasian Siskin and this Silver Y moth .
I went down to Exmouth this morning and did a bit of a sea watch where I saw a few Northern Gannet and Black-Legged Kittiwake , a distant Pomarine Skua , a Roseate Tern and a strange very pale Balearic Shearwater , the palest  one I have ever seen in all the time I have been birding !

Wednesday 1st July

I have not been out birding much lately but news of some Mediterranean Gull`s on the River Exe at the recreation ground in Topsham got me off of my bum as I had not seen one in Devon this year .
There were 4 different birds on show along with a few Black-Headed Gull , 2 Little Egret and a fly over calling Sandwich Tern .
