East Devon Visible Migration-11 Nov

Visible migration in three & a half hours along the coast between Budleigh & Exmouth recorded 60,951 Woodpigeons (give or take a few) moving west, and included one pure albino, three Great White Egrets (two carried on south over Dawlish Warren, a third circled high over Exmouth before heading back east over Otterton), 10 Brambling, 319 Chaffinch, but slim pickings for other species I would expect at this time of year: two Reed Bunting, five Bullfinch,  one Fieldfare, 10 Siskins, seven Linnets, 12 Goldfinch, one Starling, two Lesser Redpoll. There were Stock Doves mixed in, but I did not count them.

Around the Exe

A good day up on Exminster Marsh and the Estuary just over 70 species ticked off, a good day for geese with singles of SnowBarnacle and Greylag in with the Canadian flocks, good numbers of Dark Belied Brent’s on the estuary and a fly over Egyptian goose.
Avocet, Golden Plover, Black Tailed Godwit and Dunlin in good numbers on the estuary.
Female Marsh Harrier and a very pale almost white Buzzard were the birds of prey for the day.
Kingfisher at Turf, Cetti’s and Water Rail calling.
