Broadhembury & Aylesbeare Common

Thursday afternoon while working in Broadhembury I spotted a Pied Flycatcher in some trees bordering a customer’s garden (no camera) so yesterday morning I went back armed with camera, no Pied Flycatcher to be seen. However, there were two Long tailed tits, a Great spotted woodpecker, three Chaffinches and a Blackbird with food popping in and out of a nearby bush. Moving on to Aylesbeare Common were there were a few Linnets, a Song Thrush and some distance from the foot path I spotted a female Stonechat, a Siskin and a Dartford Warbler together on a bush. Total five Dartford Warblers seen around the site.

Sharpham Estate, Totnes

On completing our Heronry survey on the Dart, which was interesting, as Egrets seem to be nesting earlier and the Herons later.   Also saw a female Redstart.
