Cadover around to Legis tor

Hoped to be earlier but thick fog, so starting 10.30

Cadover-  Redwings (over in Brisworthy's fields- noting lack of holly berries this year)
Goldcrest, stone chat, pippits, robin, great/blue tit, woodpigeon, pied wagtail, grey wagtail, crow, green woodpecker. A first for me, a kingfisher, fishing further upstream towards the farm. 

Walking around to top of legis tor then to ringmoor down. 

Kestrel on top of legis tor being mobbed by the pippits, multiple ravens, sky larks passing by, golden plovers, at max one time easily 300+ birds, an initial startle from a member of the public caused them to fly, break into smaller groups and spread out, but came back to gather on ringmoor down allowing a nice photoshoot with my laying in amongst the grasses.
Also stonechat, female yellowhammer, magpie, g.s woodpecker at the plantation, robins, and buzzard.
