Brambling at Darts Farm

A visit to Darts Farm near Topsham this morning was a real treat with plenty of activity around the two crops of Sunflowers. Large mixed flocks of Finches was the main attraction following reports of Brambling being present. As soon as we arrived at the fishermans carpark a male Brambling was present in the trees above. At least 5 were seen during our brief visit we were sure there are more. Fantastic to see good numbers of Greenfinch as well. Well worth watching this area over the coming couple of months it could produce some unexpected visitors. Buzzard and Sparrowhawk showed an interest while we were there.
