Rillage Point to Watermouth

Once again a complete contrast between S & N coasts of Devon, with no visible Redwing or Fieldfare migration up here on the N coast and precious little movement at all this morning... Totals were 35 Meadow Pipits, 6 Siskins, 25 Goldfinches, 7 Linnets and only 24 Chaffinches. The scrub yielded a Chiffchaff, 3 Goldcrests, 16 Blackbirds, 6 Song Thrushes, 3 Stonechats and the highlight by some way an exceptionally late female or first-winter Common Redstart.
