South Brent and the Exe

On the moors above Owley, South Brent my first Cuckoo of the year, always remaining distant but calling well by the time I left, very few small bird species to be seen but a pair of Green Woodpecker, Kestrel and a Mistle Thrush seen.

Matford, Exeter ~ Five White Stork.

Exminster Marshes ~ Certainly two and possibly three Short Ear Owls this evening (one possibly blind in its right eye) a solitary Whimbrel, Kestrel and a drake Pintail.
