Knot Worthy Of A Blog Post

There was a lone Knot on the Estuary from Coronation Corner this afternoon. Also managed a good count of 162 Teal, split almost exactly 50/50 between Colyford Marsh and Axmouth FC.

Earlier today, a sea watch 08:00 - 09:00 revealed:

6 Red-throated Diver (west, in three lots of two)
1 Great Northern Diver (showing well on the sea)
6 Common Scoter (5 east and 1 drake on sea, later there were 2 females on the sea)
90+ auk sp. (I can't say I saw a single Guillemot though)

What an exciting birding day.......


  1. Steve,
    Just to let you know, 'The White One' (Partial Albino Herring Gull) was at Chard Res again this afternoon at about 15:50, before flying south....wish it had been an Iceland!

  2. Cheers Dave, glad to hear it is still about. There seems to be very few Icelands in the south as yet, maybe nearer Christmas?
