Black Hole Marsh (East Devon)
Third day on the south coast started with an hours sea watching at Seaton but promising southerly winds didn't deliver any decent sightings . They were limited to two Gannets, 11 Curlew, a Shelduck & three Swallows.
I was a bit disappointed as I thought I'd have every chance of seeing my first Pom Skua of the year so I headed to Black Hole Marsh. This superb reserve is sometimes called Seaton Wetlands. I met a lovely 'mad keen' couple from Weymouth whom I shared the sighting with two Black-tailed Godwits, a hunting Barn Owl, Redshank, Shelduck brood of six chicks and a Little Egret.
The site attracted a Least Sandpiper & I'm sure the site will attract many other great birders given the good habitat available.
