Brixham & South Brent

Wickedly cold in the strong winds around the Broadsands and Brixham area this morning, Broadsands gave a Carrion Crow trying to break into a dead Black Headed Gull on the beach, the rough seas spoilt any realistic sea watch.

The Brixham multi story car park gave a single Goldcrest.

The winds must have at gale force on Berry Head but views of the cliffs from the hide gave good number of Guillemots and a handful of Fulmar one pair appeared to be feeding a single chick.

Back home in South Brent the sun was out and no wind to speak of, with very clear skies the birds were flocking to the garden feeders the 29 species recorded included a female Siskin, male Reed Bunting (both making regular visits) a BTO ringed Blue Tit the last three numbers on its ring being 697, two Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, several Pied Wagtails, Rook, Jay, Raven, two Wren, two Long Tailed Tits, Sparrow Hawk, two Buzzards, 58 Jackdaw and a 40+ flock of Starling passed over head..
