Clennon Valley ~ The Friends of Clennon Valley were doing a cracking job of maintaining some of the walkways when I arrived so birding was not at its best, but Goldcrest, Little Grebe, Little Egret, Coot, numerous Moorhen seen.

Broadsands to Elberry Cove ~ Two GND, Black Necked and Red Necked Grebe, two Fulmar, Peregrine overhead towards Brixham, Guillemot, Rock Pipit, Heron and Little Egret.

Around the Broadsands ~ female Blackcap, four sightings of Firecrest, Goldcrest, Sparrowhawk, several Wren calling.

Back home at South Brent, two Sparrowhawk sightings and the remains of a Collard Dove that looked as if it had had a close encounter with a Sparrowhawk, Green Woodpecker calling, sixteen Starling and a few minutes ago a Tawny owl calling.
