The Cormorant at Apex is showing well again. I decided against uploading a corny image of this piscivore sat on its usual 'No fishing sign', instead going for a close up shot so you can look at the gular angle and confirm that it's a carbo. Much more sensible!

Migrants have all but arrived and many birds are in full breeding activity, including this resident Reed Bunting at Berrow.

These three Common Scoter were relatively close inshore at Berrow today. Usually they're miles out! The beach was full of birds at high tide, mostly common species but with large numbers of Common Terns past, and the odd less regular species such as Little Stint.

A survey to do in Dawlish today, so it would have been most rude not to pop in at Exminster Marshes for splendid views of this American Golden Plover.
5 May 2008 2nd update
This cracking Whiskered Tern on Berrow Beach reappeared on this afternoons tide. Thanks to Paul Gay, and all the others who made lots of mobile phone calls to get me onto the bird!

Whilst checking the local waters for missing Whiskered Tern I came across this 2nd year Yellow-legged Gull at Morland Pond, Burnham on Sea.

A few waders are on Berrow Beach at the moment - low numbers of Dunlin (top), Sanderling, Bar-tailed Godwit, Knot and Whimbrel (lower).
