Yellow-Legged Gull

I had a message this morning telling me that there was a juvenile Yellow-Legged Gull showing on the Exe Estuary at Mudbank Lane in Exmouth . So I got there as fast as I could and I managed to get onto the bird and how lucky that was as about a minute later the bird flew off way out onto the estuary .

Also seen was a Mediterranean Gull and a single Whimbrel .

Rough !

With the rough weather today I decided to go down to Exmouth early this morning to do a seawatch in hope of catching up with Balearic Shearwater but again I was out of luck even though one was seen from  Dawlish Warren this morning !

But I did see 15 Common Scoter , a few Northern Gannet , a Northern Fulmar , 6 Sandwich Tern , 2 Roseate Tern and 2 Arctic Skua .
