Exmouth Beach Birding

Tuesday 19th July
Some cracking photo opportunities today on Exmouth beach and some great views of the long staying Bonaparte's Gull as well as a minimum of 8 Mediterranean Gulls (incl. 3+ Juvs) and many Sandwich Tern. The Bonaparte's does not appear to have changed too much since I first came across it in April, though most notable are newly moulted adult wing feathers and a few tiny black feathers just visible on the top of the head and around the base of the bill.
