Slapton Ley

A glorious day to visit Slapton Ley, as I arrived two Stock Doves overhead and onto the Ley which was not as busy with bird life as had hoped for, virtually nothing to be seen on the sea from the Memorial car park, just two Shag and the odd gull.

On a hillside above the Ley, 33 Great Black Backed Gull in with a flock of Canada Geese.

Small birds included several Stonechat and an obliging Cetti’s Warbler that showed well at times.

On the ley ten plus Great Crested Grebe, one Little Grebe and one possibly two Black Necked Grebe.

At least five drake Pochard and two females, same count with the Golden Eye definitely two females and not less than five drakes.

Frogmore creek two Pied Wagtails and a Common Sandpiper.

Back home at South Brent several visits to the feeders from the male Sparrow of questionable origin.
