South Brent & Dartington

A busy couple of days around the garden feeders and the general area round home, two Raven showing well, a female Sparrowhawk flushed over forty Redwing from the surrounding field hedges, two Green Woodpecker calling.

Around the feeders a male GSWP, Nuthatch, numerous Goldfinch, Chaffinch but fewer Greenfinch than recently, a Wren showing well along the wall below the feeders, Blue Tit in double figures with a handful of Great Tit and two Coal Tit, Song Thrush in full song this afternoon despite the weather.

Over to Dartington to get some food supplies for the livestock so came back via the Dartington estate, the Rv Dart was flooding its banks and on the flood meadows not less than nineteen Mandarin duck, a Little Grebe and nine plus Mallard.
