A visit to Slapton today did not produce a great deal, virtually nothing on or over the sea, only real species of note on the Ley were two pairs of Gadwall, several Great Crested Grebe and a large number of Mute Swan.

The smaller birds made the day with 5 + Chiffchaff, several pairs of Stonechat and Reed Bunting, a Sky Lark seen low over the Field centre end and several more heard singing, very brief view of a Cetti's Warbler and numerous calls often close at hand but unable to see the calling bird.

Back home in South Brent male and female Reed Bunting on the garden feeders.
