A loop from Aylesbeare Common to Budleigh produced:

  • on the Common, one Dartford Warbler seen and three heard, with Yellowhammer, Siskin and Linnet also present;
  • in Collaton Raleigh, two singing Blackcaps;
  • along the Otter, Kingfisher, Grey Wagtail and a singing Treecreeper;
  • along the cliffs at Ladram, my first Fulmars of the year;                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Finally, back in Exeter, a Firecrest was in the conifers on the N side of the Crematorium.
