I twitched!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And for the first time (I'm ignoring the Trews Weir Lesser Yellowlegs dip). It was great to see both of the rarities that I went to Brixham to see; both the White Billed Diver and the Cirl Bunting flock. Unfortunately the WB Diver never came particularly close and the water was rough so the pics all have a 'busy' background which is a shame. On the other hand the Cirl Bunting flock was comparatively obliging.

Avocet pics

I had about 3 hours to myself throughout last week so I thought I'd give the Exe Estuary a brief visit. I'd never actually been to see the wintering Avocets before so it was quite spectacular for me. I couldn't get especially close, and it was quite dark but I took some pics none-the-less:
