Totnes area and South Brent

A run round some of the Totnes rivers this morning, due to high water levels and fast run off virtually nothing to be seen at Staverton, Dartington or Totnes.

Bow Bridge to Tuckenhay ~ 16 Mallard, two Mute Swan, Moorhen and a Little Grebe.

South Brent two female Siskins on the garden feeders, the first females of the winter season, one being BTO ringed, female Bullfinch, 28 House Sparrows at one point, good numbers of Greenfinch, Chaffinch and Goldfinch.

(Re the Siskins~ a friend in the village had a male and a female on his feeders)

This evening a Tawny owl sat just outside the house.
