Dartington estate

Dartington estate ~ the large flock of mixed finch species continues to feed in the wheat and seed crop field alongside the deer park, initially very little on view until a Kestrel came over and a huge number of small birds lifted from the field and took shelter in the surrounding field hedges, 70 plus Wood pigeons feeding in the same field.

Still a good number of Blue and Great Tit feeding on the beech mast.

Six Brambling seen within the large Chaffinch flock, Linnet numbers still good, Wren, Nuthatch, Buzzard and Jay also seen.
