Spotted Redshank, Whinchat and Wheatear.

As it was a cloudy but bright morning I decided to try for the summer plumaged spotted redshank on Goosemoor over at Topsham.   I had only ever had good views of winter plumaged birds before so was pleased to see this one as it was pushed up by the tide not long after I got there.

Back on Colyford Common this afternoon Ian M. found a whinchat amongst a large fall of wheatears.   After a bit of waiting around the whinchat finally came a bit closer before quickly crossing the walkway and moving on with the wheatears.
