Leach`s Storm Petrel

 I got up early today and did a seawatch from the raised beach huts at Exmouth and was rewarded with my first Leach`s Storm Petrel since 2009 and lucky enough it was not too far out in the bay heading west .

Also seen were numerous Northern Gannet , 9 Common Scoter , 2 Great Northern Diver , 2 Pomarine Skua , 2 Manx Shearwater , a single Great Shearwater , 3 Black-Legged Kittiwake , 3 European Shag and another smallish petrel that was just to far out for I D .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     On the way back home a stop off at Mudbank Lane in Exmouth got me 9 Red Knot , a Grey Plover and a Common Kingfisher .
