Wise Birding Holidays
Thursday, 19 January 2017
A look off Chiselbury Bay this afternoon was well rewarded with 7 Eider close in-shore. Eider numbers have declined alarmingly in recent years in Devon with just a single bird recorded in the whole of 2015! The last bird I saw in Budleigh was an eclipse drake off the West Cliffs from 4 - 8th August 2014. Also present this afternoon were at least 200+ Common Scoter, a few Guillemot and 2 RT Divers.
